"Magico": a gay magician auditioning for a regular job finds an interesting partner, maybe

 

knick knacks

Juan Sebastian Valencia presents “Magico”, which seems like a compressed gay version of “The Prestige’, perhaps, posted in November 2020.

Luke (Aaron Evans) is going to audition for a troupe in a magic show.  A bisexual swaggler Carl (Sam Street) enters the picture, ambivalent about what their relationship may be.

But the tension stirs Luke to develop his skills, which do become supernatural.

There is a somewhat intimate scene in the middle section.  They take off their own shirts (why not let them do it to each other) and the total count of chest hairs is zero.

The film has won awards in numerous LGBT film festivals.
