Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries & Mentors of Ricky Jay

World famous close-up magician (and occasional actor) Ricky Jay is considered one of the best card trick men in the business. This documentary catalogues his achievements and influences--from apprenticing with his grandfather at age 4 to working with now-forgotten legends like Al Flosso, Slydini, Dai Vernon and Charlie Miller. Featuring archival footage from 1970s TV appearances and a narration by Jay himself, the film is less of a spoiler-filled exposé of the magic industry and more of a mesmerizing look at one man's love for sleight-of-hand. 88 minutes Unrated.
