Taschen's collection of classic magician art is sinister and wondrous -io9
Magic: 1400s-1950s is just what it sounds like: an overview of magicians from late Medieval manuscripts to the period just after World War II. The text is lovely, with essays and captions by Mike Caveney and Jim Steinmeyer that illuminate just how magicians were innovating in the field of special effects — and razzle dazzle — over a more than 500-year period. We learn that "magic is the oldest performing art," going back to the Egyptian pharoahs, and we discover why so many magicians wanted to surround themselves with mystical glamour and quasi-Satanic demon imagery....

I can make the Burj disappear: Emirati magician -
Dr Montaser Al Mansouri could easily pass off as another Emirati as he orders Turkish coffee at a restaurant in Al Bahia here. But Al Mansouri is special -- very special. Watch him unceremoniously pull a wallet out of his pocket to pay the bill. In a split second, the purse turns into a ball of flame in his hands. Al Mansouri apologises to the petrified waitress, opens the wallet again and hands her a Dh100 note with a smile....

DVD Review: 'Burt Wonderstone' isn't an amazing magician - Wisconsin State Journal
In the slight parody, Carell plays the title character -- a stuck-in-the-past magician who isn't exactly getting along with his lifelong partner, Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi). When a hip street illusionist (a very funny Jim Carrey) steals focus, Wonderstone's left to regroup. He tries one of those big David Blaine stunts, fails and watches as his livelihood vanishes in front of him.

Plot holes are big enough for a magician's rabbit - This is Bath
Nothing is what it seems in Louis Letterier's high-stakes game of cat and mouse between four crowd-pleasing Las Vegas illusionists and the FBI. Every narrative twist could be a double-bluff, every failure a carefully orchestrated diversion and every flirtation a calculated exercise in audience manipulation...

Dynamo: Magician Impossible – now that's magic - The Guardian
So here is Dynamo (AKA Steven Frayne) in New York, in a puffa jacket, embarking on another string of quietly astonishing somethings, including making mobile phones ring spontaneously and turning a basketball into a rugby ball. At the end of each illusion, the programme's producers ask stupefied onlookers to recount what they've just seen. This proves no easy task. They might as well be asking them to describe the shape of gas, or mime the smell of cloud. "It like, oh my God, and then, like, woahwoahwoah," shouts one woman, deafeningly surprised by the sight of a plastic bottle appearing to pop its own lid...

His quiet demeanour has people fooled - and how - Wanganui Chronicle
His street magic - apart from levitation - includes leaning into a coin on a table and breathing ice around it, transferring a cellphone to the inside of a beer bottle and casually walking on water and or through glass windows. The thing about this extraordinary man is that he is very sweet. His quiet demeanour has people fooled - you can see that they don't really think this small quiet chap could have them gasping with amazement. His magic is so stunning it takes you a couple of seconds to actually comprehend what you've just seen.
