The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
A Bit Strange
This film was interesting to say the least. I think it got a little bit confusing at times, but once you start to catch on it really is a brilliant story. I think one of the most amazing thing about this was the "replacements." It's no question that Ledger was one of the incredible actors of our generation, so his fill-ins better be good--and they were. I was extremely curious to see how Gilliam was going to work Depp, Farrell, and Law into the film and actually have it make sense. It all made perfect sense, and they all did a wonderful job. I'm usually not a fan of fantasy movies such as these, but when they are good they are good. Also, I must make mention of Wait who did an excellent job of playing the devil. He was clever, smooth, sarcastic, and all the things you love to hate. He was probably one of the more fun characters to watch.
My problem with the movie, however, is that it was a little difficult to follow. It takes about forty minutes to an hour to really sort out what's going on, and even then, there are still some unanswered questions. I will say that it's worth watching. I think this is one of those movies that some people can really love and others just don't.
