The film brings to life Randi's intricate investigations that publicly exposed psychics, faith healers, and con-artists with quasi-religious fervor. A master deceiver who came out of the closet at the age of 81, Randi created fictional characters, fake psychics, and even turned his partner of 25 years, the artist Jose Alvarez, into a sham guru named Carlos. But when a shocking revelation in Randi's personal life is discovered, it isn't clear whether Randi is still the deceiver - or the deceived.

The Reviews for An Honest Liar (2014) 720p

Liar, honest, skeptic god or just man?Reviewed byHank YankVote: 9/10

This is a story on the tension between reality and illusion.

Randi early in life: " I'm a trickster, I'm a cheat, I'm a charlatan, that's what I do for a living. Everything I've done here was by trickery."

Randi, the great illusionist and escape artist, becomes a fighter for truth later in life. Living a mission to uncover illusionists who are saying they are in contact with the gods like, Uri Geller and Popov, who were claiming psychic powers.

Randi proves they are just illusionists, debunking their self-claimed divine powers. Randi believes this is extremely important as people place far to much trust in these fraudulent con-men.

I find it interesting to see the human will to believe, people ignoring the proof offered by Randi, wanting to believe in divine powers on the earth thereby feeding the mouth and pleasures of the con men in the world.

I wonder is the influence of con men a bad thing?

A person in the documentary said it quite well, the energy in the room with Popov was amazing. With his self claimed godly connection he created a belief, a huge energy filling the room, giving people faith, a rush. An energy people lack in normal life.

The conclusion is that Randi's skeptic words are an inconvenient truth. Because what is an earth without divine powers? This energy in room with Popov is real. If Randi is right, are we just Muppet's running around being born, feeding ourselves and dying?

Randi is a front-man of the skeptics, believing, that we will have a better world without this "god on earth" illusion.

With this believe and his well placed actions against the frauds he became a god in itself for the skeptics.

It is extremely beautiful to see Randi was living a large part of his life with a huge lie and illusions as well. Thereby proving his no god as well. No god for the skeptics. Just a normal man; an honest man, a liar, all in one. There is divinity in that.

James Randi Gets His DueReviewed bygavin6942Vote: 8/10

The life and career of the renowned stage magician turned scientific skeptic of the paranormal, James Randi.

We have some great classic footage, though some is a bit fuzzy by modern standards. The well-known debate with Uri Geller is here, but also a pretty thorough section on Peter Popoff, whose story I did not know about. It is sad to know that these guys get debunked and keep on going.

The film also focuses on Randi's relationship with his boyfriend of twenty-five years, José Alvarez, who at the time of filming, had been discovered to be living under a false identity, calling into question "whether Randi was the deceiver or the deceived." This is quite a fascinating twist, as the great debunker turns out to have been sharing his life with the greatest con of all.

That's magicReviewed byPrismark10Vote: 7/10

James Randi is known as a master magician, escapologist and illusionist. In recent years he is better known as a man who exposes fake psychics and faith healers.

He regards conjurers as honest people, psychics and faith healers as being dishonest, who swindle people from their money and at worse dangerous with their quack medicine.

The film traces Randi's life from downtown Toronto to when he first saw his magic show and his interest in Harry Houdini. He was a regular in the American late night talk show circuit since the 1970s.

However from the 1970s onward when the likes of Uri Geller and Peter Popof showed up on television with their amazing feats, Randi felt the need to expose these charlatans. Geller's spoon bending was just good conjuring and in The Johnny Carson Show, Geller was stumped that night because the producer had followed Randi's advice in setting up the props.

Popof used Jesus to cure people but he knew their ailments because it was all fed to him on a mic wired up to him as his researchers talked to the audience before hand.

Still as Geller said these days despite people being more rational and educated, despite Randi's efforts there are more psychics, faith healers and flimflam men than ever before. Both Geller and Popof are plying their trade.

The last part of the film delves into Randi's personal life. The film hints at his sexuality and his relationship with a young Venezuelan José Alvarez who has been his companion for several decades. However Alvarez suffered an expose of his own with immigration authorities causing Randi no end of troubles and heartache as to what he really knew.

This was an enjoyable watch, nice to see him embarrass the likes of Geller and Popof but really they are coated with some kind of Teflon as they have no shame. The money is out there and Geller and Popof just reinvented themselves and still grabbed it. The film hints was this all for nothing?
