Entertainment Reviews:

Chicago Sun-Times - 04/17/2013
3 stars out of 4 -- "The doc is about Jay and the legendary figures who have inspired him since he became, at 15, the youngest magician to ever appear on TV."
Los Angeles Times - 05/16/2013
"This documentary provides an elegant, enthralling peek behind the curtain and into the you-won't-trust-your-eyes world of this celebrated contemporary conjurer."
Wall Street Journal - 05/30/2013
"[A] marvelous documentary....The larger subjects, eloquently evoked, are the sources of his knowledge and inspiration, and the singular tradition within which he works and flourishes."
