The Amazing Johnathan Documentary

It begins as a documentary about “The Amazing Johnathan”, a uniquely eccentric magician who built a career out of shock and deception in the 1980s—but becomes a bizarre story about the unravelling of the documentarian. After Johnathan is diagnosed with a terminal heart condition and given one year to live, he’s forced to retire his act. Cut to three years later: Johnathan is not dead, much to everyone’s amazement, and documentarian Ben Berman films the illusionist on an epic comeback tour.
