The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Terry Gilliam in good, completed movie shocker! Who'd have thought?

Thanks to Ledger's demise, about the only thing I knew about this film was that there's some alternate world bits, and while Ledger's character is in that world, he's played by Jude Law, Johnnie Depp and Colin Farrell. Actually, I didn't recall who filled in - just that people did.

Anyway, this was glorious, with mad, mad visuals and some beautifully honest mixing of the enchanting sideshow and present-day London. I was a little worried that it was going to go all Angel Heart on me at one point, but it didn't. At least, I don't think it did. I don't actually understand what did happen in the end, but I don't think it was that...

Anyway, great. Go see.
