DECEPTIVE PRACTICE is a mesmerizing journey into the realm of modern magic with the multitalented Ricky Jay, a world-renowned magician, author, historian and actor. Touted as one of magic’s greatest, Jay is dedicated to researching, teaching, performing and perfecting his craft. Magicians would normally be reluctant to let their secrets out, let alone allow a documentary crew to peek behind their velvet curtain, but Jay allows directors Molly Bernstein and Alan Edelstein to do just that inDECEPTIVE PRACTICE. Shot over ten years, the film examines Jay’s life, career and profession while providing a rare glimpse into the world of magic.
