The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus Reviews

Movie Talk

The film is flawed, but you don't expect narrative drive or coherence; you go for the director's flights of fantasy. Possessed of an imagination that throws off more sparks than a fizzing, spinning Catherine Wheel, Gilliam is a fabulous fabulist.

One of the greatest motion pictures ever. From its astounding themes to its brilliant cast, stunning design to enchanting score, undeniable smarts to lasting significance, this is Cinéma! Buy this movie. View this movie. Marry this movie. I have spoken.

It's like snorting a line of pure Gilliam.

Fate's cruel trick -- taking Heath Ledger from us midway through filming -- has inspired Gilliam to make one of his most inventive and strange films.

The actual story is muddled, but the imagination of the visual imagery is very good.

Gilliam has had a rough 10 years, but he's ended the decade with what is easily one of his seminal works. He has shown what imagination and storytelling means to him, and he's made one of his best films in the process.

Terry Gilliam, the veteran film director who cut his teeth as the animation wizard of television's legendary Monty Python's Flying Circus, has flirted with genius throughout his career, and bedded her from time to time. In The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnas

Endearingly packed to the rafters with ornate anachronistic artistry, Gilliam's Imaginarium is a great place to window shop--and get lost for a spell.

The story is odd and doesn't really hang together very well, but the film is worth watching mainly to experience the wonder of Mr. Gilliam's fantastic visual imagination.

PopMatters

As one of the last great proprietors of motion picture prestidigitation, Gilliam is his own protagonist. As you follow the fall of Parnassus, you see the story of the director's rise, rejection, and reinvention of himself.

If Ledger had completed the entire film or not, Doctor Parnassus doesn't seem well-focused enough to be a truly landmark Gilliam work but it's much closer than anything else he's done this millennium.

Parnassus is fun to watch a good deal of the time, and Gilliam is almost always visually surprising, but Ledger could have used a more momentous send-off.

It teases with magnificently tantalizing moments that don't quite add up to one grand insight. Which, come to think of it, is an epiphany of its own peculiar sort.

When it's all done we're left with another recent Gilliam trademark: the highly imaginative mess.

A new Gilliam film is always a good reason to go to the movies, and Ledger's final screen appearance is certainly more than a curiosity.

Seriously, if you could make money designing other people's acid trips, Gilliam would be a zillionaire.
