Movie Reviews of Movies I Haven’t Seen: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
I just wiki’ed Johnny Depp to make sure that he’s not actually British (he’s from Kentucky, which would make him more Gilbert Grape than Captain Jack Sparrow, which I can only assume means he sounds like Gwyneth Paltrow, but French, in real life.) Big picture – this movie is clearly about Heath Ledger… the handsome actor dying in the middle of production of a fantasy film? America loves that crap. (Sort of related is anyone watching “10 Things I Hate About You” on ABC Family? Does it seem weird to anyone else… not that Alex Mack or Andrew Keegan are doing anything right about now… but still, too soon?) To save the unfinished film the character of Tony transforms three times: Heath Ledger -> Johnny Depp -> Jude Law -> Colin Farrell… well if that fantasy isn’t perfect, I don’t know what is.
Can I get an Amen Sisters!
