01.04.14Netflix Ricky Jay is a really interesting guy with a great act and to me feels like one of the best legit sleight of hand artists working today. Of course I say that as someone not at all in the magic world - I just like him in Mamet and PTA movies, but still. He strikes me as a guy very much into the history and code of magicians and I don't see him releasing street magic DVDs or viral youtube vids just to get hits.

This doc details his upbringing and shows lots of early clips as well as talking about the momentous figures in the field that mentored him. Very interesting stuff. Part of me wanted to just watch Jay's act whenever they showed clips of him but this movie had a different scope which is fine. Interesting watch.
