Weird fantasy - The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus review by CH

Spoiler Alert
25/11/2010

This film took my back to my childhood, not in a good way. It reminded me of the old type black and white horror freek movies. The story was quite promising but was too way off for me. It is a shame for such a famous cast.

The real stars are the intricate sets, props and costumes. - The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus review by The Lesser Merlin

Spoiler Alert
02/08/2011

This film is a fantasy written and directed by Terry Gilliam. It nearly failed when Heath Ledger died part way through filming. His role was taken over by Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell (all portraying the character in the dream world). The Imaginarium is a mirror and a doorway into a place where your wildest dreams become real. It is well acted and directed, but somehow lacks oomph: the boisterousness that the characters all deserve is lacking. But the real stars of the film are the intricate sets, props and costumes.
