Review: 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus'

Original post made on Jan 12, 2010

Early in "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus," the titular mystical showman advises an onlooker, "Don't worry if you don't understand it all immediately." Good advice for the paying customers of Terry Gilliam's latest phantasmagoria, who probably won't understand it all even by the time the credits roll.

This was a great movie, maybe not one of Heath Ledgers best movies. It was highly entertaining with the right amount of weird that Terry Gilliam contributes to the movie. I love Heath Ledger and may his memory live on in the years to come!
