Movie Info

DEREK DELGAUDIO'S IN & OF ITSELF is a new kind of lyric poem. It tells the story of a man fighting to see through the illusion of his own identity, only to discover that identity itself is an illusion. An intimate and powerful exploration of what it means to be and be seen, the film chronicles Derek DelGaudio's attempt to answer one deceptively simple question, "Who am I?" His personal journey expands to a collective experience that forces us to confront the boundaries of our own identities.

In & Of Itself might be brave act of kindness, it might be cynical show of trickery, it might be both at once or something else altogether. Whatever else it is, it's completely fascinating.

The virtuoso applies an extraordinary personal touch to his highly focused hocus-pocus.

The place of magic in In & Of Itself is not to amaze for amazement's sake, although I was certainly stunned by some of what happened. It's that the unreal is used to create the super-real.

It feels like a goddamn miracle

Granted, watching something like In & Of Itself in your living room isn't quite the same experience as seeing the show in an intimate theatrical setting. But for now, it's the next-best thing, and as structured, a very good one at that.

There's a magic here that has nothing to do with rabbits pulled from hats. It's a testament to the power of the material and the determination of its interpreters to not dilute it.
