Dealt- movie starring Richard Turner, Card Mechanic extraordinaire, in an upcoming movie .
Note: Richard Turner prefers to go by the title of ‘card mechanic’.
I saw him in Cape Town, when he was performing and the Cape Magicians Circle went along. He is unbelievably skilled. Considering how many years he has spent with a deck of cards in his hands, i doubt anyone will ever match his skill with cards.
The film by Luke Korem, has some great reviews.
(Update: see the end of this article for the news that a full feature film is going to be made on the life of Richard Turner).
Dealt knocked me dead… Turner and the tough love of his family, won my heart. A great documentary.
(Teller, of Penn and Teller)
