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.
