    Man! Iï¿ 1/2(TM)ve loved Ricky Jay for many years but had no idea of his origins. No wonder he was so good: not only did he have a deep and lifelong love of magic, he had the good fortune to have loved ones and friends who were great magicians themselves. What a great documentary, both for people who loved Ricky Jay as well as for anyone who loves magic and the history of the greats, a lineage up to and including Ricky Jay himself. RIP Ricky

    A fascinating documentary about Jay and magic in general. Slight of hand tricks that will blow your mind. I would have a little more personal information.

    It's funny....I didn't even know Ricky Jay was a magician... I just knew him from P.T. Anderson movies! Turns out he's one of the greatest illusionists of all time! And this is a wonderful doc about his life.
