Whether this was real or magic on Blaine's part, it is very irrelevant, because it was ALL very well done. I applaud David Blaine for this.

I haven’t seen this show yet but I just read a review of it from one of our broadsheet newspapers. The review’s introduction was what most caught my attention. The reviewer expresses what seems to be a common feeling among non magicians who review magic shows. Even when they like a show they can’t shake off the feeling that there's something unpalatable about the nature or intention of it.

‘Oddly, there’s something about master illusionists that gets up the nostrils. It’s the narcissism and the megalomania which grates, the perverse messianic desire to engender awe and inspire wonder. It would be intriguing to know what underpins the pathology, beyond the basic bloat of male pride (women don’t tend to bother with this stuff). But just as they never explain their tricks, magicians never reveal what makes them tick.’

I’ll reserve my opinion until after I’ve watched the show but thought the general point made by this reviewer was interesting in, for me at least, a vaguely annoying sort of way.

The full review can be read here

Blaine went back to basic here. A great return to form.
