This is a fine documentary about Randi, a true story told in an interesting way. But is it cinema, or art, just because it is shown in a cinema? I say, no. this type of "film" is a form of journalism, not art. There are however documentaries by great artists, Chris Marker, Agnes Varda, Michael Glawogger whose work transcends the traditional format. They (mostly) started differently and evolved into documentary films.
Quite an interesting character study and a great example of the often vastly different side to show business personalties once they leave the stage or screen. An honest liar is told with respect and is mostly engaging. 3 stars
It's a wake up call that despite professional magicians explaining how the frauds do this a vast majority still argue the belief that miracles and cures for diseases are all entirely possible down to faith. Worrying shit! The only fault with the documentary is the final third which gets into James Randi's personally life that's kind of relatable to the subject in hand with facing lies but could have done without.
An interesting look into the world of real and fake psychics. James Randis tales from the his life as a magician and a fake-psychics-catcher is the best parts of the documentary - his personal life aspect somehow isnt that interesting.
