(1989) dir Arthur Penn w/Penn Jillette, Teller, Caitlin Clarke, David Patrick Kelly [89 min; 35mm]
A particularly peculiar film from two of the most famous stage magicians in the world, PENN & TELLER GET KILLED begins as a fictionalized ‘day in the life’ of the performers. At first it appears that their off-stage life revolves around the pair playing practical jokes on each other, but soon they find themselves pursued by a deranged assassin. Or do they? Whatever the truth, the results of the will have serious repercussions for Penn and Teller and, indeed, the entire world.
