Brief thoughts on ABRACADABRA (2020) Fantasia 2020

In a world of magic a magician makes a young boy disappear and then can't bring him back...

Hands down one of the most magical movies of the year. A stunning celebration of life, stories and the movies. This is a film that is a must see for anyone who loves the movies or story telling.

I don't want to say too much but I have to say that this is kind of like if Fellini made Tarsem Singh's THE FALL. Its a magical mix of reality and fiction that simply delights as it moves us deeply.(Some people have compared it to Wes Anderson as well, and I can happily throw that into the mix too- though truthfully ABRACADABRA is ultimately it's own wonderful dish)

And that dear friends is all I will say other than this is a must see.

Think of this as exactly the sort of wondrous films that made long time NYAFF attendees fall in love with the festival all those years ago.
