Waiting a long time to see The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus in order to savor watching Heath Ledger perform for the last time, left me feeling sad and empty even though I adored the film.

I was waiting for the moment when Heath’s screen time would end and how exactly would the incorporation of Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell come into play. I realized how early on, when a drunk kid comes stumbling out of a nightclub, and happens upon Doctor Parnassus’ (Christopher Plumber) dilapidated sideshow performing on the street. Trying to skirt-chase Parnassus’ daughter Valentina (Lily Cole), (she attempts to hide from him and his obnoxious advances), he follows her and falls through the imagination mirror on stage.  Falling face down in mud he no longer looks himself, but a different lad entirely. In fact he is no longer on the streets of modern London. This world is an imagination you see, so anything is possible.

That holds true for most of the film. Imaginarium is not neat nor is it sane. The story plays out slowly and you need to pay attention to what is going on. The Imaginarium has a hint and flavor of Time Bandits, which is also directed by Terry Gilliam, so if you’ve seen that film, you know what you’re in for.  Crazy characters, elaborate set design and special effects, little people, evil people and damsels in distress. You get the picture.
