“Fun” to make and to watch, as well as satisfying to respond to, ABRACADABRA’s realization is a miracle of sorts. Contemporary and very digital, it also celebrates some of the thrills and spirit of early cinema, especially the excitement and bewilderment that once hovered over the possibilities of film; its acceptance of accidents and reflections on the medium; breath-taking and space-breaking phantom rides; the contradictory mirror-held-up-to-nature character of “actualities”; and of course, the magic of hand-tinted photographic moving images.—Ernie Gehr
