The Mentalist: The Complete Fourth Season <b>DVD</b> ~ Bruno Heller
My wife and I love this series. If you know the continuum of story from season 1, then the plot gets more riveting as each season unfolds. However, each episode can be watched individual as a microcosm for what the show is all about.

From Wikipedia: Mentalism is a performing art in which its practitioners, known as mentalists, appear to demonstrate highly developed mental or intuitive abilities.

Hypnosis may also be used as a stage tool. Mentalists are sometimes referred to as psychic entertainers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The REAL RIO, July 19 2011
Great foreign movie. Takes place in Brasil. A WARNING: For those who don't know what this film is all about, it is VERY, VERY VIOLENT and loosely based on real world events. It is not for the faint of heart. If you can stomach it however, your time will be well spend watching this. They are both pretty long movies. City of God, is outstanding all on its own and it is a bonus to get two movies in one set for about the price of one. Worth a hard look.

To add to the credibility of what these guys are saying, read and/or re-read this book and compare what they said to what actually happened in the FIFA 2010 World Cup. They said West Europe is currently/still the dominant force at the world soccer stage, that are; they said Japan would do well and they did; and they predicted England's exit to a tee: they predicted they'd lose to Germany or another old war time rival; and they did. Excellent read from both a statistical standpoint and in the entertainment department.
