About the Movie
MAGICIANS follows four world-class magicians on stage and off, exploring how and why these characters so passionately dedicate their lives to the craft of illusion. Their journey takes us from the most humbling of road gigs to grand performances on the biggest of stages, from finding love to terrible personal loss; and to the prospect of losing everything for a dream others don’t understand. As we come to understand why each is obsessively chasing his own dream, we’ll discover the unhidden secret: far more fascinating than the magic are the magicians themselves. Includes iTunes Extras! Get an even deeper look into the mysterious world of professional MAGICIANS with five Deleted Scenes from the movie, a Behind-the-Scenes photo gallery, plus an exciting series of interviews with renowned magic luminaries exploring the power of magic.
This movie is pure magic
Magicians is the best documentary about what it's like being a working professional magician.
This movie is a must see for any magic enthusiast.
Saw this at a film festival earlier this year. I wasn't a magician fanboy so I had my doubts, but the way they show the four magicians struggle with eking out a living while pursuing their passion makes the story pretty universal. I'm actually expecting some Oscar buzz for Documentary Feature.
As a fan of magic but by no means an insider in the business, I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Very well done, a great cast of characters, and some laugh out loud moments as well as some real emotional depth. If you are a fan of magic or just a fan of good documentaries, check this one out.
