[Movies] The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus Trailer

Terry Gilliam at IFC Center: "Will direct...Image via Wikipedia

Terry Gilliam has come a long way from just being another Cardinal (and many other roles) on Monty Python's Flying Circus. He's become quite the visionary writer / director which such visionary works as The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Time Bandits and more recently films like The Brothers Grimm and Tideland.

His more recent production, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus has had the added bonus of being the last work of Heath Ledger. Given his death, it's interesting how the film has evolved to include three other actors playing the same character as Heath Ledger - Jude Law, Colin Farrell and fantasy's favorite friend, Johnny Depp. The trailer certainly looks promising and it seems to indicte that this just may be a pretty striking work even though initial reviews and previews have very mixed feelings. I'm just highly appreciative of the fact that they managed to somehow retain the look of the portagonist despite four different actors playing him and of course Gilliam's signature love of high fantasy, dizzying visuals and exciting sequences.
