100 Word Review – The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)

It’s a shame that this film is best known for being Heath Ledger’s last and not for its own merit. 

Doctor Parnassus (Christopher Plummer) with his daughter (Lily Cole) and the rest of his theatre company (Ledger, Verne Troyer, Andrew Garfield) travel through modern London performing their strange show, ever followed by the mysterious Mr Nick (Tom Waits).

Written and directed by ex-Python Terry Gilliam (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Twelve Monkeys, Brazil), it is coated in his trademark style of combining the mundane and the bizarre to create something magical. Co-starring Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law.
