Richard Turner would prefer if you forgot that he’s blind. He’d much rather you appreciated his remarkable card-maneuvering abilities on their own merits, and man, what merits they are. The subject of upcoming documentary Dealt, Turner is astounding when it comes to manipulating cards, as Penn & Teller learned when he fooled them. His line in the trailer about being a “card mechanic” is maybe the most gangster thing a magician has ever said.
Dealt was a winner of SXSW Audience Award in 2017, and will be in theaters and on demand this October 20.
