      Debra S This movie is hard to describe, except to say, just watch it. Suspend your disbelief and be prepared to be entertained, intrigued, and possibly transformed! I watched it twice and plan to watch it a third time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/19/23 Full Review Suzy G Watched it twice, long enough in between to forget the specifics. Moved me to tears both times. The kind of movie I wish to tell everyone about so that we can talk about it. It's different, it's moving, and it's so powerful to me that I had to remind myself of how many times he performed it. The emotion comes off as so real, though I can't understand how it could be. But maybe that's his true gift. To move the first person and the thousandth person into a melancholy like emotion, to make each person feel special equally. And maybe that's the greatest gift of all. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/04/23 Full Review Pam O Amazing. Will watch more than once. Moving and inspiring, and the magic is great. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/15/23 Full Review andrea R Amazing! On the edge of my seat the whole time. Wonderful story telling. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/25/23 Full Review Jullien L Fresh, great story telling to guide the viewers exactly where the performer wants you to go. Must see Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/15/23 Full Review Gabriele S One of the most thrilling shows I've ever seen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/21/22 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Angie Han Mashable In & Of Itself might be brave act of kindness, it might be cynical show of trickery, it might be both at once or something else altogether. Whatever else it is, it's completely fascinating. Jan 26, 2021 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times The virtuoso applies an extraordinary personal touch to his highly focused hocus-pocus. Rated: 3.5/4 Jan 23, 2021 Full Review Linda Holmes NPR The place of magic in In & Of Itself is not to amaze for amazement's sake, although I was certainly stunned by some of what happened. It's that the unreal is used to create the super-real. Jan 22, 2021 Full Review Kate Robertson Stuff.co.nz It’s a part magic, part one-man show, part Tony Robbins-style self-discovery that has to be seen to truly be felt – and understood. Feb 12, 2022 Full Review Selina Lee In Review Online Forget flamboyant Las Vegas-style magic shows; DelGaudio is as understated as they come, readily mocking magic's razzle-dazzle stereotypes and clichés. Jun 5, 2021 Full Review Glenn Sumi NOW Toronto Magician Derek DelGaudio will hypnotize you with his unique brand of personal storytelling and jaw-dropping illusions.
