Storyline

"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."

Wonderful documentary of the what it's like to be a professional magician
3 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

There is a lot to enjoy about this film. Beautiful cinematography, well edited and shot, they picked a four very well known and very different performers, from close up to stage performers. You get to see what it's really like to be truly dedicated to the art. The stories are each very interesting and varied. If you are wanting to see a lot of performances of magic, that's not the focus here. Yes, there is magic to be seen by some of the best magicians in the world. But the focus is on the performers as human beings and how they work to be successful in their profession as well as in their personal lives. If that storyline interests you, then this is a great film to watch. Hope you enjoy it
