"Shade" should have been "Spade," as in "grab one and bury this film QUICK!" Its only redeeming qualities were its pandering to the fraternity with its incessant name-dropping & inside references, while also making "Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes" appear to be high art by contrast. Where's Ed Wood when you need him?

Anyway, "Magic," with a younger, less rotund Sir Anthony gets my nod for the trick that almost was. Hopkins starts out strong and never finishes a card trick in a dramatically pivotal scene; makes me nutty every time I watch -- "Just find the darn card already!!!"

A movie about "magick" with magic is: Cast A deadly Spell. Lovecraft meets Roger Rabbit.

The Escape Artist....came out in the late 80s I believe. Its about a kid who wants to be an escape artist.

The "Illusionist" "Prestige" and "Shade" got me hooked. "The Escape Artist" wasn't quite up to the level of the others, but it was certainly enjoyable and had the O'Neal kid did lots of interesting tricks. As magic consultant, Mr. R Jay instructed the young actor. No camera tricks. I recall pickpocketing, water torture, smart patter, a couple of versions of Oil and Water, juggling, coin rolls, change box, card to wallet,and a neat coin vanish from beneath a shading menu ( I wish I knew the creator and where this one is described.)

In a recent remake of "All the King’s Men" starring Shaun Penn as Huey Long, the behind-the-scenes bonus section shows a bit of magic that is easy to miss. The whole cast has finished Louisiana dinner. Sir Anthony Hopkins is at the edge of the screen. He is evidently pleased, as are the onlookers, with a coin vanish. The vanish was cut, but from Anthony Hopkins’ body language and the other folks expressions, you can tell what transpired.
