An honest liar

This looks like it’s going to be, well, amazing…

Justin Weinstein and Tyler Meason, two of the filmmakers behind Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey and Sons of Perdition respectively, are making a documentary about the man, appropriately titled An Honest Liar: The Story of the Amazing James Randi. The film will not only dive into his past and talk to other fellow expert skeptics like Adam Savage, Bill Nye, Richard Dawkins, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Penn and Teller, but it will also serve to document Randi’s next grand debunking as he plans and assembles, “an Ocean’s Eleven-type team for a carefully orchestrated exposure of a fraudulent religious organization.”

    Off-topic: the March 2012 issue of National Geographic has a lengthy article: : In the Footsteps of the Apostles. It has remarkably low standards of integrity.

    I hope this film gets made. I love James Randi.

    Seeing that makes me want to see more, so I sent $100.

    I just had a thought, triggered by that first movie of theirs: would you call a rash, triggered by an allergy to something the Muppet was made of, “St. Elmo’s Fire”?
