Synopsis

AN HONEST LIAR is a feature documentary about truth and deception and the life of world-famous magician, escape artist and master skeptic, James ‘The Amazing’ Randi. The film brings to life Randi’s intricate investigations that publicly exposed psychics, faith healers, and con artists with quasi-religious fervor. A master deceiver who came out of the closet at the age of 81, Randi created fictional characters, fake psychics, and even turned his partner of 25 years, the artist Jose Alvarez, into a sham guru named Carlos. But when a shocking revelation in Randi’s personal life is discovered, it isn’t clear whether Randi is still the deceiver – or the deceived.

Per Theater Chart: Grey Skies Ahead

March 12th, 2015

Grey Gardens poster

There was only one film to reach the $10,000 level on the per theater chart, Grey Gardens, which opened with $13,845 in its lone theater. This is surprising, as the Criterion Collection Blu-ray came out more than a year ago. More...

Limited Releases: No Doubt About This Week's Limited Releases

March 6th, 2015

Merchants of Doubt poster

This week, the limited release report is practically the Video on Demand report, as nearly all limited releases are also playing on Video on Demand. The rest are all documentaries, which rarely earn any measure of mainstream success. Worse still, most of the non-documentaries are earning bad reviews, so their box office chances are even worse. Faults is probably the film with the best chance at finding an audience in theaters, but that's not saying much. These Final Hours is also earning great reviews, but it doesn't have the star power that Faults has. Of the documentaries, both An Honest Liar and Merchants of Doubt are worth checking out. More...
