Have you ever seen someone levitate in front of you? Or ask you for a coin - and then matter-of-factly bite it in half? If not, then prepare to be dazzled, staggered and generally blown away by this documentary portrait of magician David Blaine. Blaine became world famous for acts of endurance such as spending 44 days suspended above London's River Thames in a perspex box - but he first made his name as a purveyor of "street magic," approaching strangers in his native New York and leaving them speechless at the card tricks and other "close-up" stunts he performed.
