In Paris, a young American who works as a Michael Jackson lookalike meets Marilyn Monroe, who invites him to her commune in Scotland, where she lives with Charlie Chaplin and her daughter, Shirley Temple.
A series of hazy 8mm vignettes, accompanied by a soft, lilting voice over, in which girls skulk around schoolyards, spray graffiti, drink, smoke, pose and embrace, evoking the loneliness, confusion and overwhelming wonder of growing up.
Houdini who? David Blaine is the real thing. From his feat of magic to his feats of endurance we are treated to a visual cavalcade of illusions that will freak you out. I came upon this special accidentally and had never heard of David before. All it took was that one look, and I realized that I had found the most talented magician of our day. I hate to use the word "magician" when describing David, because it tend to lump him into the group of artists who grace the stage with their illusions. One of the things that sets David apart is that he does his work right in your face. Walking among his fans, he chooses to let you in, dares you to stare right at him while he entertains you, and never letting you see what his magic is. Illusions and tricks are one thing, but to make grown adults belive in magic is his most special gift. David, if you ever read this.....Rock On Buddy!!!!!
