The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Last night, the bearded giant and I went to see The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. It was fantastical and crazy and amazing. Terry Giliam has done it again. Really, I promise. I haven't seen nearly all of the stuff that he's worked on, but I am a HUGE fan of Time Bandits. It's silly, it's cute and it's great. To me, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus seems like an extension of Time Bandits. Like Terry tapped into that same creative vein to create something truly original and truly spectacular. The plot is solid, the acting is good, the cinematography is outstanding. If you haven't yet seen it, I encourage you to do so again while it's in the theater.
