"The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" is a fantastical morality tale, set in the present-day. It tells the story of Dr. Parnassus and his extraordinary 'Imaginarium', a traveling show where members of the audience get an more »irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Doctor Parnassus is cursed with a dark secret. An inveterate gambler, thousands of years ago he made a bet with the devil, Mr. Nick, in which he won immortality. Centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr. Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his daughter reached her 16th birthday, she would become the property of Mr Nick. Valentina is now rapidly approaching this 'coming of age' milestone and Dr. Parnassus is desperate to protect her from her impending fate. Mr. Nick arrives to collect but, always keen to make a bet, renegotiates the wager. Now the winner of Valentina will be determined by whoever seduces the first five souls. Enlisting a series of wild, comical and compelling characters in his journey, Dr. Parnassus promises his daughter's hand in marriage to the man that helps him win.
From the opening scene I thought it might be a bit to far out there but the story was actually very easy to follow and made sense. The visuals were stunning and the acting was good. It's your typical Gilliam movie, off the wall, not main stream. If you like Brazil or Time Bandits or The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. Then you'll probably like this film. To me it was at bit bizarre at times, but I did enjoyed it, so did my Dad who I saw it with. Would I see it again?? Maybe once but I don't think I'll be adding it to my DVD library.

I have one word for this movie.. EPIC!!! okay well I have more words. I loved this movie. It was beautiful, I could have sat there for hours watching them explore Pandora. The acting was great, Zoe who played Neytiri was awesome. I loved the story and the details about the Na'vi people. We really got to know these people. I love how they explained the connection of the planets, people, animals and the world. And did I mention that every shot of Pandora was BEAUTIFUL. You couldn't tell that the majority of this was CGI. The Na'vi looked so real and the world they lived in was fantastic. I did see this in 3D and wow what an experience. But I do think they movie would be just as beautiful and great in 2D. This wasn't your typical 3D, just so they can poke items into your face. This 3D actually made you feel like you were standing with them in their world. There were times when bugs, dust or ash was floating inches from your nose and want to swat it away. Several times when they would be looking down from a high distance my stomach would go queasy, it was so real.
I know there are people who hated the story or call it racist and I so don't understand that. But of course human beings can be cruel and intolerant at times, proof in this movie.
I can't wait to see this again and next time I want to see it in IMAX 3D. Can't wait to get back to Pandora.
