Trailer for ‘The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus’
Heath Ledger‘s final film role as Tony, a magician who makes a deal with the devil in exchange for incredible powers, looks to be even campier than the joker. And Johnny Depp, Colin Farrel and Jude Law, who stepped in to take over the role after Ledger’s untimely death, seem to be doing over-the-top imitations of him. At any rate, the film looks extraordinary: a pastiche of gothic horror, burlesque comedy and fantastical whimsy–all themes that director Terry Gilliam has become expert at. And any cast that includes Tom Waits is a plus.
