Only Terry Gilliam could come of with such a film. Only Terry Gilliam could come up with such visuals. Only Terry could have such a luck with actors – whether you think it’s good or bad luck. I don’t want to bring up any bad memories to anyone and we all miss Heath and we all think he was absolutely brilliant. But somehow The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus also works with the help of his friends, Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell.
Something about this film is really absurd, maybe it’s the way it looks, or maybe it is the way the characters behave and look, maybe it’s the whole setting and story of the film. But there’s some unforgettable things about it. Heath, and his friends are great, and so is Lily Cole who is absolutely Breathtaking as Valentina, Dr Parnassus’ daughter. See for yourself, Judge for yourself. I’m not going to bet you’ll like it, but I’m not a betting man like Dr Parnassus. Watch out for the magnificent portrayal of an immortal character by Tom Waits.
