James Randi documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival

Justin Weinstein and Tyler Measom's documentary about the life and work of James "The Amazing" Randi, An Honest Liar, will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, April 18-25.

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.

Randi is one of my heroes and one of the great men of magic, so I'm very excited about this doc. Check out the all-new trailer below.

  1. We second that emotion! James Randi is a wonderful guy and I'm proud to call him a longtime friend and unindicted co-conspirator. All magic fans should make it a point to attend at least one of his Amazing Meetings in Las Vegas. The next one is July 10 - 13. A huge highlight is Penn Jillette's Rock & Roll, Doughnut & Bacon Party. This year also features the Dark Stories magic/spiritualism show with Eugene Burger & Michael Carbonaro, and the infamous Skeptics Poker Tournament. Seriously, it's a don't miss event!
