A new film about the life of James “The Amazing” Randi, one of the most recognized and well-known skeptics in the world today.
An Honest Liar profiles the life of famed magician turned professional skeptic James “The Amazing” Randi as he embarks on a series of public crusades to expose America’s beloved psychics, mentalists, preachers, and faith healers with religious fervor. Along the way, the film will show how easily our perceptions can be fooled – by magicians, con artists, and even documentaries.

Going by previous posts, we sort of expect to get comments on this from those who do not like Mr. Randi. [Warning: Personal attacks will be deleted.]
While some outspoken commentators may not like him, he is an influential figure who has done a great deal in exposing frauds and false claims. By casting due criticism onto the paranormal field, he continues to influence the public and the media. He continues to promote critical thinking through the JREF today. This legacy has garnered respect and gratitude from many.
