Top Notch Mentalism!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 22nd, 2011
in this day and age, so many effects, in both magic & mentalism are simply a matter of recycling...old tricks performed packaged and marketed by someone out to make a quick buck...(I should jump on this bandwagon myself, but I have higher standards)...& at first glance you might think that this is the case with Prevaricator, especially if you know "Ring of Truth"...but this couldn't be further from the Truth...Patrick Redford seems to have taken on the pursuit & art of mentalism with the utmost interest & integrity...read the shape series!!! And this DVD is a prime example of his earnest indevores and devotion...it is 112 minutes of top notch explanation, a practice session build in, "Prevaricator theater" in which the demo performances are broken down and explained in detail & AND!!! A 100 page ebook that goes into the history, progression and development of the concept and exhaustive information on the technique...if you are looking for a modern classic in mentalism...THIS IS THE TICKET!!! beginning or advanced level, you will not be disappointed!

The anonymous guy form London down there knows nothing about this trick. Redford's version uses true mind reading techniques and is completely different from Banachek's logic puzzle approach. This trick is not a logic puzzle at all. If you don't know the secret, it would be impossible to come up with the right method. This trick does need some practice to master the techniques, and it has a certain probability that can go wrong, but Redford also teach you how to make a safety net as well. Once more, this DVD contains real mind reading secrets. So if you're tired about guarantee-to-work mentalism tricks and want to go for something real, you have to watch this one.

this trick is super easy to learn, after watching the method and practicing for like 5 minutes I already did it 55 times perfectly, it might be a little bit harder for other people to learn it than it was for but it still worth the effort.
the trick is very strong, and very easy to do
Good effect Report this review

This just works. I'm new to mentalism, and I've done this just after watching the DVD. As an actor I also have a focused look witch helps, but you will easily get it right! This just works and its just mind reading, no "but". Only takes 4 stars just because it could go even deeper in make it "movie like" mindreading.

THIS IS AS CLOOSE TO MIND READING AS YOU FIND
Great effect with great outs Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 25th, 2012
This effect is very straight to the point and if done properly can be amazing. The true effect is not 100% and will take a lot of real world practicing to get a hang of it. Anyone who says they could do it 100% after 5 minutes is exaggerating. With that said, he also included plenty of safety nets for you to use while you are getting used to things. While they aren't as straight forward as the original routine, they are still just as effective. Once you learn how to handle your outs, you are well on your way to performing this amazing effect. During the performance sections he also gives a couple amazing ideas to incorporate into your routine as well.
The teaching is very detailed. He gives staged and then real world examples. I was very impressed with these sections.
Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and cannot wait to add it into my show.

Great mentalism! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 28th, 2013
I'll be the first to admit that this is great mentalism, but you're gonna have to be good at reading people's facial expressions and body language. This is not a self-working effect. The DVD offers great instruction but at the end of the day, you're just gonna have to go out and try it. That's the only way to really learn it.
What I've Been Looking For!!! Report this review

As a total amateur I've been wanting to learn some really good mentalism. Got this in the mail around lunch time and was performing it on family and neighborhood friends by late afternoon and IT WORKS!!! And the beautiful thing is that I can do it anytime anywhere since it requires no gimmicks. Just simple skill and practice. Good stuff!

I have had this for a couple of years now and can't believe I'm just posting a review. Prevaricator is no joke 100% real, hard hitting, mentalism at it's finest. It is a bold effect similar to Peter Turner's work, but I find it much more accurate and essentially easy to perform. The routine with multiple people I believe is most effective, though if you're looking to impress some people without performing a whole gig, you could absolutely do this as a stand alone effect. I could tell you the basic premise of how Prevaricator is performed and you will still not be able to execute it without Patrick's detailed teaching. The last thing I'll say is while a lot of mentalism doesn't take a lot of skill and practice on the effect itself but rather in the performance, Prevaricator is certainly an exception as it takes skill in the performance AND the effect itself. It's beautiful...truly and utterly beautiful!
