The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

imaginariumdrparnassusAs a man (Heath Ledger) who tried to hang himself joins a traveling theater troupe in England, its ancient leader (Christopher Plummer) is worried about a deal he once made with the Devil. Just like the drunken idiot who in the film’s early scenes is sucked into the mysterious world on the other side of Doctor Parnassus’s mirror, so are we immediately fascinated by director Terry Gilliam’s visual tricks.
