I dont know if this is ok here but surfing on youtube I found this documentary about a Close Up magician called Troy Star. Although I didnt watched it all yet I found it pretty good. I like the idea that you can watch it online and buy it if you liked it. You may take a look. I leave you a review.

"Prepare to be dazzled like never before in the movie event of the decade.

In a classic case of ambition far outweighing talent, burnt out and broke B-grade magician (Troy Star) decides to turn his life around by executing a half-baked scheme to travel the globe shooting a documentary on magic.

Once abroad, the plan starts to fall apart. In a bid to keep alive his dreams of money, women and a taste of the big-time, Star keeps hacking away at it despite the mounting odds against success.

The action, comedy and drama never stops as he weaves his way around the globe meeting a selection of real-life characters, magicians and some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry such as Cuba Gooding Jr and NBA Star Shaquille O'Neal - all headed for Las Vegas, in a feel good Hollywood style ending that will leave you inspired and totally entertained.

This is really funny, lol.

I think the videos look better on the official site tho, plus you get the extra media stuff.

It's a mockumentary, right? (not documentary)

As long as I know this guy is real and none or very little of the material on the movie is faked. I met this guy in a club in Tokyo where he performs close-up magic. Good you liked it.

The reason I thought it's a mockumentary is because of the movie title and subtitle font style used in the beginning (almost like a flag screaming 'this is a parody'). It looks like he's poking fun at the new kind of entertainment Criss Angel and David Blaine brought. Altho I found the mockumentary to be funny, "no hating" on Angel and Blaine (at least, 'no hating' from me). I've enjoyed watching Angel and Blaine's shows, they're very creative and entertaining magicians/illusionists. I like their take on the art form, their personalities that they've put into their art, and how they've taken things to levels we haven't seen before.
