The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

I'm guessing I'm not going to be the only Terry Gilliam fan on the forums

We sure this the other week at the cinema and it was fantastic. If you're a fan of Gilliam's other work I seriously suggest you check it out. The movie has the very typical Terry Gilliam visual feel to it, which I love and the script and acting were both brilliant in my opinion. One character in the film gets played by multiple actors, but there is no question at any point that they are the same person. They are all spot on and it is surprisingly believable that we're following the same person throughout despite the different faces. Tom Waits as the film's devil is a prefect bit of casting as well.

There is also one scene which is a pure Monty Python moment and was absolutely brilliant. It stands out but doesn't break the flow of the film. Just perfect.
