DVD: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, For retail & rental (Lionsgate)
Sunday 04 April 2010
Forget the plot (an immortal man risks losing his daughter in a bet with the devil) and revel in the fantastical world Terry Gilliam summons in this exposition on the imperative of the imagination (in the film industry as much as life itself).
Heath Ledger famously died during filming, but Gilliam works some trickery involving Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell, and while the piece doesn't always hang together, it is a compelling visionary tour de force.
Artists unveils new exhibition inspired by Hastings beachart
