Magicians

2

Peep Show’s Mitchell and Webb on film. Could it be magic? You wish... Playing to type as estranged magic show partners, the no-hopers re-team years after an on-stage fatality. Nothing wrong with the mock-Prestige setup, but the TV cast ( Jessica Stevenson, notably) is wasted and Andrew O’Connor’s direction lacks PS’s scruffy character. It’s better suited to TV than film, but too timid for its own good. Mitchell’s video diary nails it: “None of it is of much moment… I apologise.”
