World-renowned magician, Ricky Jay, is embraced by both audiences and fellow magicians alike, provoking astonishment in even the most skeptical of viewers. Featuring rare footage from his 1970s TV appearances (doing 3-card Monte with Steve Martin on The Dinah Shore Show) and told in Jay's inimitable voice, this is a remarkable journey inside the secretive world of magic, and the small circle of eccentrics who are its perpetual devotees.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Unsurprisingly, Mr. Jay proves a hugely entertaining guide, and as generous about his professional inspirations as he is reticent about his own life.
Fresh: Well structured and dynamically edited, Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay relies on the famed magician himself to wax autobiographical with his usual charm, humor and panache.
Fresh: This documentary provides an elegant, enthralling peek behind the curtain and into the you-won't-trust-your-eyes world of this celebrated contemporary conjurer.
Fresh: It's magic, pure and simple.
If you don't know who Ricky Jay is YOU SHOULD!
Delightful and amazing
This is so enjoyable, so much fun - pure entertainment.
Fantastic film. Watch it.
