Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay

Tweet Review by Dean Duncan Jun 2, 2015 @deanduncan63

Saw #DeceptivePractices… So-called B-roll is so textured & vivid as to graduate itself all the way to A-status. Exemplary artifacting.

#DeceptivePractices. Jay is an incredible multi-virtuoso, in all manner of wildly arcane, basically useless things. Folly/heroic devotion.

#DeceptivePractices. Folly, or magical abstract expressionism? This is modernism, art sans referent, w’ medium/materials the point & subject.

#DeceptivePractices. RJ is a virtuoso. Or, this is an addiction narrative, compulsiveness w’ an almost, actual flavour of brimstone.
