Synopsis: An Honest Liar is a feature documentary about truth and deception and the life of world-famous magician, escape artist, and master skeptic, James ‘The Amazing’ Randi.  The film brings to life Randi’s intricate investigations that publicly exposed psychics, faith healers, and con artists with quasi-religious fervor.  A master deceiver who came out of the closet at the age of 81, Randi created fictional characters, fake psychics, and even turned his partner of 25 years, the artist, Jose Alvarez, into a sham guru named Carlos.  But when a shocking revelation in Randi’s personal life is discovered, it isn’t clear whether Randi is still the deceiver – or the deceived.
