A magician competes in an international magic competition where he goes head to head with a female street magician he has fallen in love with. This film shows great magic performed by a cast of professional magicians. Like a great musical where the songs and the story are seamlessly intertwined, Desperate Acts of Magic does the same, mixing story and magic as one.

Desperate Acts of Magic is a pleasant little film.Village Voice Full Review
Despite the preachiness, however, they have still made a moderately enjoyable film, thanks to some engaging performances.The New York Times Full Review
While the plot is a non-starter, the margins of Gold and co-director Tammy Caplan's debut feature are scattered with other real-life magicians who make quarters vanish every time our attention does the same.Los Angeles Times Full Review
Tammy Caplan and Joe Tyler Gold's film gives off the alienating feel of an inside joke that you miss in the off chance you're not part of the professional magic business.Slant Magazine Full Review
