Derren Brown - Mind control (Episodes 1 - 6) Xvid (Size: 1.39 GB)
This torrent was uploaded from www.TheBox.bz - the home of all British TV
Derren Brown is a new and unique force in the world of magic and illusion he can seemingly predict and control human behaviour. Whether he's convincing a medical student to push a needle through his own flesh, scamming a London casino, touching table dancers without going near them, or making a bookie pay out on a losing ticket. Derren's unparalleled performances will amaze and unsettle you.
He doesn't claim to be a mind-reader, instead he describes his craft as a mixture of psychology, misdirection and showmanship. Derren is even prepared to share some of his techniques with you. So, sit back, turn down the lights, and open your mind to this extraordinary man.
If you haven't come across Derren Brown before then Mind Control is a great introduction to the considerable skills of the only living Jedi Master. This show debuted on Channel 4 in the wake of a resurgence of interest in magic spearheaded by David Blaine. But what Derren Brown does hardly falls into the category of sleight-of-hand--his "magic" is firmly grounded in the workings of the mind and psychology. The result is a fascinatingly mysterious, but definitely not psychic, phenomenon.
This programme takes the best bits of the series and condenses them into a manual of mind reading. Brown uses the power of suggestion, body language and basic psychology to predict and alter people's behaviour, be it using subliminal messages to make a couple of creatives come up with exactly the same ad for a chain of taxidermists; counting cards in a casino; or guessing someone's PIN simply by watching the subconscious movements their fingers make when they are thinking of the number--all of which will have you shaking your head at the TV wondering how he did it.
Derren Brown is a showman of Barnum-esque proportions whose charisma, charm and originality have won him more fans than detractors. Just like the Matrix, no-one can be told what Derren Brown is, you have to experience him for yourself.
