“If there’s any magician today who can compare to the spellbinding Eisenheim in the film “The Illusionist,” then it is James David Parker. As with Eisenheim, there’s something otherworldly and Victorian about James, as if he’s still in touch with the timeless mysteries that others have forgotten. And like Eisenheim, James blends magic with metaphysics, illuminating it all with a profoundly moral vision. No one else is doing what James is doing”
