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."

The sad lives of professional magicians
27 February 2017 | by mccloskey-838-801291See all my reviews

Rather depressing but realistic look at the hardships and loneliness of performing as a professional magician made even more sad by recent revelations about Daryl Easton (not featured in the movie) who just committed suicide at the Magic Castle before a performance.

3 out of the 4 magicians show well known performers eeking out a living, with no partners except for dogs. The one performer who seems to be a success and at the end of the film gets a gig at a major Las Vegas showroom, was arrested after filming ended and is now in jail facing 30 years for child pornography.
