5.0 out of 5 stars A life worth Living, 20 May 2004
It isn't often that I applaud after watching a film, but I acutally apllauded during one key moment in this film and finaly at the end when Red and Andy were reunited. This film broke my heart and heald it at the same time. It inspired me with hope and faith that life which at times can appear cruel can also be worth fighting for and worth living.
A mans search for purpose and meaning is fully explored in this film along with other virutes like truth, justice, honor, friendship, patience, courage, fortitude and the capacity to see beyond your current circumstances.
This film is wake up call to all people regardless of colour and creed who truly want to believe in the magic and majesty of life.
This film inspired me to beleive in myself and others and that the journey of life is nothing more than a series processes and who you become in the process is far more important than your arrival at any given destination.
I love this film and it has my highest recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Royal Road to Card Magic, 12 Jan 2004
Quite simply one of the greatest books ever written on the subject of sleight of hand card magic. This book is one of the very first to teach card magic in structured way. Taking the student by the hand, focusng on one individual technique and then it's many applications.
The quality of the effect are simply outstnaidng; the last chapter contains material of the highest calibre. Routines like Everywhere and Nowhere, The Conus Aces and The Ladies Looking Glass are the finest mysteries ever created.
All that is required fromt the student is passion, patience and dedication; to learn, study and practise. Everything is here for the student to progress.
Many great magicians started with this book; I was one of them
