The Magus British mystery drama directed by Guy Green in 1968. The screenplay was written by John Fowles, based on his acclaimed novel of the same name, published in 1965.
A teacher (Michael Caine) on a Greek island quickly becomes involved in bizarre mind games with the island's magician (Anthony Quinn) and a beautiful young woman (Candice Bergen).
Note: People who don't like this film are idiots! Such as film critics. What went wrong in film is that the real creativity and consciousness dried up! I find it interesting that this film came out a year after Patrick McGoohan's Prisoner series ran on television.
