An Honest Liar

I'm either late or early with this - or both - but I simply hadn't heard of it before. This is a trailer for a documentary on the life of James Randi. It looks great, doesn't it?

I'm late, because there was a Kickstarter project to finish the film, but it ended February 15th (with nearly twice the pledge money of their $148,000 goal).

Or I'm early, because the film hasn't been completed yet. But I did think this trailer was intriguing. In particular, I liked seeing James Randi as a young man. I really knew nothing about his early career, before he became the scourge of fake psychics, faith healers, and other scam artists everywhere.

Here's the home page of An Honest Liar: The Amazing Randi Story. More clips from the film are here. But if I read the Kickstarter info. correctly, the whole documentary won't be completed for another year and a half, or so.

I think Penn Jillette is also working on a biography of James Randi.
