Official Trailer for Meta Doc 'The Amazing Johnathan Documentary'
"You just never know with him… Is this a joke?" Hulu has debuted an official trailer for the documentary called The Amazing Johnathan Documentary, originally known as The Untitled Amazing Johnathan Documentary when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The Amazing Johnathan is a comedian magician / illusionist, already very well known, who finished up a few tours in 2017 and 2018. What begins as a doc film following the final tour of a dying magician - "The Amazing Johnathan" - becomes an unexpected and increasingly bizarre journey as the filmmaker struggles to separate truth from illusion. I heard from those who saw at Sundance that the film is less about Johnathan, more about the challenge of making a documentary, and what happens when things get confusing and you can't tell who is being truthful or not. As a fan of both magic and documentaries, you can definitely count me in with this one. Take a look.
