All about Richard
16 March 2019 | by justusdeboerSee all my reviews

Dealt is a documentary about Richard Turner, a blind card magician. It's also about his family and his shows. Richard Turner is a very talented and dedicated man, who does not need sympathy or pity because he's blind. In fact, he likes to hide it. In this documentary you see Richard in his daily life. Although he's hiding the fact he's blind and does not use a cord or a dog to help him, he needs his son and wife all the time to point him the right way. Because he's so dedicated to whatever he does, he expects it also from others, like his son.

When I saw the documentary I got the feeling that everything is about Richard and everyone in his life is there to serve him. It's true that he committed a lot of time in becoming who he is now. Some things he achieved are astounding like the black belt in Karate. But he's not able to accept that other people's standards aren't as high as his. The scene where Richard and Asa (his son) work out in the fitness room says a lot. In the scene you see Richard and his wife commenting on Asa's fighting technique, it's like nothing is ever good enough.

I got the feeling Richard is a very self-centered man. It's sad he doesn't want to recognize his condition so other people have to help him all the time. His sister is also blind and is living a live where she can go where ever she want with a dog. But Richard doesn't want that, instead everybody has to pitch in to help him. Being on stage suits him very well as all the attention goes to him.

Maybe it's more the American way of life, to be always busy with yourself instead of others. It's true Richard is very successful and I respect all things he accomplished. But I wouldn't like being around him for too long. I think he's very lucky with the great people around him, otherwise he wouldn't be the man he is now.
