Come celebrate the Indywood premiere of "An Honest Liar! Watch a top-notch documentary and have some drinks with your New Orleans film family. Get yourself a ticket and enjoy free booze provided by your favorite neighborhood movie house!

Directed by Tyler Meason and Justin Weinstein, this documentary spins the tale of magician-cum-escape artist James "the Amazing" Randi, who, like his role model, Houdini, eventually turned his primary attention to debunking professional mystics, telepathists, and other "supernatural" charlatans. Focusing on two high-profile targets, the spoon-bending showman Uri Geller and the evangelical faith healer Peter Popoff, the movie digs into its star's loathing of paranormal claptrap. Dogging Mr. Geller and publicly replicating his tricks, or exposing Mr. Popoff's chicanery to an astonished Johnny Carson, Mr. Randi is a twinking skeptic, killing careers by sleight of hand.

It's all the more moving then, when Randi's world tilts and the man who spent decades unmasking the artifice of others finds deception much closer to home. "An Honest Liar" gives some perspective on Gandi's late-in-life coming out as a gay man, and from a different sort of "coming out" by his longtime lover, who turned out to be hiding a secret identity.

This documentary ounces along enjoyable on a sea of archival clips from Randi's high profile career, and features latter-day input from numerous celebrity pals and at least one famous foe.

If you've ever been curious about the myths of spoon bending, you don't want to miss this one.
