A wonderful magic show inside a stirring documentary
This movie kept me engaged from cover to cover. Twice, already. All of the magician subjects grow before your eyes in their magic, confidence, and identity. And their understanding of what it takes to achieve mastery is breathtaking.
There is a punchy beat as the movie follows its subjects across continents. Kudos to Lucas Vidal for a terrific score. And to whoever created the story structure of bringing everyone to Vegas about a third into the movie, then back tracking. I felt indulged to be inside the Magic Castle during some of the scenes.
I hope this movie will inspire everyone who sees it. The child magician is latent in us all- these are kids who have worked hard to make it manifest.
