James Randi calls him a fraud who tricks people with magic tricks of “the kind that used to be on the back of cereal boxes”. Magical legend Jim Steinmeyer on the other hand says that he’s “one of the greatest magicians of all time“. Scientists at Stanford Research Institute believed he had real magic powers. Most of the public know him simply as the guy who bends spoons. But the documentary above, The Secret Life of Uri Geller, explores a different side to the controversial ‘psychic’ entertainer: his involvement with both Mossad and the C.I.A. Did they believe he truly had paranormal powers, or was he being used by one side or the other (or both) for their own ends? Well worth a watch, no matter where your opinion on the man lies.
