"The Magician" is a darkly comic film about Melbourne-based hitman Ray Shoesmith who is being filmed by his friend and neighbour Max, a film student. As Shoesmith goes about his chilling business – threatening violence and in some cases making good on those threats – Max's camera continues to roll. Charismatic and opportunistic, Shoesmith makes the most of his 15 minutes of fame dictating the action with his mordant wit, dry asides and unpredictable violence.
