A quote from the press about An Honest Liar:
“The film is indeed amazing…An Honest Liar is not about magic per se or about James Randi as a magician but it is a fascinating look at the willingness to deceive and be deceived… a stunning example of documentary film making” (http://thisisinfamous.com)
