The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Once again Terry Gilliam seems to be on the verge of movie greatness (Well, in my humble opinion anyway).  No US release date, but I hope to enjoy this little burrow into the farthest recesses of the mind, soon.

If you re not familiar with Mr. Gilliam’s work, I would encourage you to look beyond Monty Python (which I am a big fan of) and take a chance with The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Time Bandits, Brazil (which is amazingly ahead of its time), The Fisher King or 12 Monkeys. 

The cast for Imaginarium looks stellar and marks the last appearance of Keith Ledger. The visual tone and resonance is so typically the mark of this amazing movie maker. Give your eyes dessert and give your brain a reason to smile. Enjoy.
