The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus

One of the more amazing aspects of Terry Gilliam's latest film The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, besides being a beautiful visual spectacle, is the fact that even though its star, Heath Ledger, died a third of the way through production, Gilliam creatively works it to where you don't even notice it. Besides that, I had a really tough time following what was actually going on in this movie. And even though Imaginarium will forever be known as Heath Ledger's last role, musician Tom Waits upstaged everyone with his role as the devil and, being the Waits fan that I am, that was worth the price of admission alone.
