Martin Scorsese documentary on President Clinton stalled

A director likes to be in control -- it’s basically in the job description. The same could be said for a politician, particularly one who’s been leader of the free world. Put the two together on one project and, well, there’s no guarantee they’ll be able to play nicely.

In late 2012, HBO announced with great fanfare that director Martin Scorsese was embarking on a documentary about President Clinton. Scorsese, who has previously made documentaries about such luminaries as Bob Dylan and George Harrison, called Clinton “a towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues,” while Clinton said he was pleased to have a “legendary director” like Scorsese chronicle his years as president and his work since leaving the White House.

More than two years later, that project, which has been partially shot, has now stalled, according to a report in the New York Times. The alleged issue? Control. Specifically, Clinton -- looking to protect both his own image and that of his wife, Hillary,...

TV Picks: Ricky Jay, Tom Edison, 'Justified,' 'Masterchef Junior'

"American Masters: Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay" (PBS, Friday); "American Experience: Edison" (PBS, Tuesday). Two films about magicians, transformation and the impossible made real.

Ricky Jay is the first magician to be given the "American Masters" treatment, a press release would like you to know. But as the show's full title suggests, Jay remains mysterious in the piece and (prestidigitator that he is) largely directs your attention elsewhere, to the magicians who made him: Slydini, Cardini, Francis Carlyle, Al Flosso (the Coney Island Fakir), Dai Vernon, Charles Miller and, most significant perhaps, his grandfather Max Katz, an amateur magician of high standing who was his living introduction to some of these deceptively ordinary-looking men. There is no attempt to put his own work in the context of contemporary magic, or the wide world of illusionism, or harvest comments from colleagues, competitors or followers of his own -- what he means to or how he...
