An Honest Liar

84 mins


James "The Amazing" Randi became a world-famous magician and escape artist by studying the art of illusion employed by Harry Houdini and other master magicians. When Randi saw these techniques used by spoon benders, faith healers and mentalists to extract money from innocent people, he was outraged and appeared regularly on television programs to debunk what he considered phonies of the lowest kind. Truth and deception — hallmarks of Randi's life — take on a new meaning, however, when he has to fight a different battle, one that involves the law and his partner.
