We got another disc in the mail from Netflix, last night, and subsequently watched the Terry Gilliam flick, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, which was very, very Gilliam. Some nice work in it. It was the film that Heath Ledger was working on upon his death, and Gilliam had to do some severe reworking to fit in several other actors in Ledger's place.

I thought he was working on Batman when he died. Both?

Apparently a good deal was shot with HL, they then slipped in Colin Farrell, Johnny Depp, and Jude Law all to continue in different parts of the film, an interesting solution. This wasn't my favorite Gilliam film though.

I hadn't considered which Gilliam film is my favorite. I mean, honestly, they're all somewhat disturbing, just some more than others.

Maybe it's Time Bandits, though I did really love Robin Williams' scenes in Baron Munchausen.

No, I don't think so, it was just that Imaginarium wasn't close to being finished, and needed a complete re-write after the death, while Batman had all or nearly all of principal photography done.

I've only ever seen a preview, but the visuals looked pretty incredible.

It reminds me in lots of ways of Time Bandits and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, but is very different in its own way. I think that any screwup of the film has to be primarily due to the inopportune death.

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
