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.
