The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus


Zopas (eindelijk) The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus gezien.

The film follows a traveling theater troupe whose leader, having made a bet with the Devil, takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations and present them with a choice between good and evil.

Heath Ledger, Christopher Plummer, Lily Cole, and Tom Waits star in the film, though Ledger’s death one-third of the way through filming caused production to be temporarily suspended. Ledger’s role was recast with Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell portraying transformations of Ledger’s character as he travels through a dream world. [bron: wikipedia]

Terry Gilliam heeft weer een fantastische film gemaakt. (Dringend tijd om Twelve Monkeys nog eens te herbekijken.)
