Tribeca Exclusive: Let a Famous Magician Wow You in the Trailer for 'An Honest Liar'

With a life and occupation not unlike Harry Houdini’s, “The Amazing” Randi set out to shame fakers and sub-par psychics with his performances. But going beyond his bewitching story, the investigative documentary, “An Honest Liar,” takes a closer look at the deceptive escapade that became his life-long career.

Justin Weinstein and Tyler Measom’s documentary is coming to 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. Watch the trailer to see footage of real tricks, escape artistry, bending spoons, and bits of interviews with Alice Cooper, Richard Dawkins, Bill Nye, Penn & Teller, and Adam Savage weighing in on the hoodwinking wonder. The film world premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 18.

Stalin was educated in a monastary, Hitler and Mussolini were Catholics, Kaiser Willhelm 11 was afirm protestant, All the spanish Inquiaition were of course Catholic. Of course when the Black death, and plagues and floods kill millions, then God (Who loves everybody) is still God. Do we still need superstition in the 21st Century????


Randi is one smart cookie. I'd love to see him debunk all religions in a documentary. Maybe then the world could advance a little faster and be a safer place to live in.

I do hope that this film will be available in the UK,- I'd love to see it go world wide (as I'm sure Randi would).
