Fear is how I know I'm alive.
The History Channel miniseries Houdini (2014) begins with a F for Fake (1973)-like challenge. Some of this is true, some of this is false and "I defy you" to tell the difference. While this is artistically appealing, it would be nice if a biopic about a very famous person I know very little about was entirely factual where possible. That said, for a History Channel miniseries--an institution that is slowly fading from WWII/Civil War-only self-parody to Anything-But-History-Channel self-parody--this is about as strong as you could hope. It stars Adrien Brody, an actual actor, is visually well-produced, and boasts a mostly unoffensive script while the musical choices are disappointing. The result is something like Chaplin (1992) as directed by Tony Scott.
