    Most reputable DVD outlets. It's on Amazon, for example.

    To add to the list, Magicians, the 2007 British comedy film, is better than the reviews made it out to be.
     
  9. is it on itunes?
    and can you post an amazon link?
     
  10. Wot about Arrrry Potta ;)
     
  11. 21 it's about counting cards
     
  12. I personally enjoyed watching "Dai Vernon-The Spirit of Magic," "Ricky Jay-Learned Pigs and Flying Women." and there is a short documentary called "The art of Tommy Cooper" which I think can be found on youtube. Of course we cant forget "Grand Illusions, The History of Magic" which has two volumes, both of which are nearly 3 hours. As well as "Mysteries of Magic" I'm also aware of a newer documentary style film called "Make Believe" I have yet to watch it, but I think it's about younger magicians competing for the title of worlds best teen magician. Those are the ones that I can list off the top of my head. And all previously mentioned like Shade, The Prestige, The Illusionist, Burt Wonderstone, Now You See Me....Oh and Death Defying Acts. Hope this helps!
     
  13. Make Believe was really great...very cool to follow these young people as they develop their acts and perform onstage.
