The Hell With This Podcast #32 - The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus

Post by Chad Peter » Wed Jul 19, 2017 10:44 am

With whispers that Terry Gilliam's ill-fated Don Quixote project might finally see the light of day, we thought we'd dive into another Gilliam film that almost didn't make it to screens: "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus". With the passing of Heath Ledger - half way through production - Gilliam and crew had to shut down and regroup. The result is stronger than one might expect, given the circumstances, with some flaws along the way. The real question is - can Terry Gilliam return to form?

I liked this movie all right, but my line about it is, this is the movie people who don't like Gilliam imagine when they think of Gilliam.

"The Zero Theorem" is far more successful in my opinion.

… Although I haven't seen either since theaters. (erk)
