Quotes & Highlights
- “The magic tricks — whether transforming objects, levitation or demonstrating telepathic powers — are first rate, and executed by Selznick and his assistants (Brandy LaPlante, Rob Martinez and Bettina Zacar) with matter-of-fact assurance that belies the intricate sleights-of-hand involved. Selznick’s low-key, self-deprecating humor makes the wizardry all the more impressive.”—LA Times (Critic’s Choice)
