    • Synopsis
    • It's the most dangerous illusion in magic: the Bullet Catch. Fourteen men and women have died performing it. In The Trick With the Gun, a feature documentary, author Chris Gudgeon and magician Scott Hammell set out to perform their own version of the deadly trick, but wind up getting more than they bargained for. What starts off as an exploration of the hidden world of magic and magicians becomes a study of a friendship falling apart. It's a story about risk, relationships and the delicate dance between reality and illusion, and how everything changes when you're staring down the barrel of a gun.
