Amy Nicholson
Los Angeles Times
While the plot is a non-starter, the margins of Gold and co-director Tammy Caplan's debut feature are scattered with other real-life magicians who make quarters vanish every time our attention does the same. Full Review
Diego Costa
Slant Magazine
Tammy Caplan and Joe Tyler Gold's film gives off the alienating feel of an inside joke that you miss in the off chance you're not part of the professional magic business. Full Review
Neil Genzlinger
The New York Times
Despite the preachiness, however, they have still made a moderately enjoyable film, thanks to some engaging performances. Full Review
Pete Vonder Haar
Village Voice
Desperate Acts of Magic is a pleasant little film. Full Review
