New Terry Gilliam

One of the best cinematographers of our times is back with a great new movie (just released). «The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus» is right on Gilliam’s spirit (he’s responsible for Brazil, The Fisher King, Twelve Monkeys): visually stunning, fully of imagination & fun, simply put a great movie.

The movie has an amazing cast with Heath Ledger (his last movie) replaced by Johnny Depp & Jude Law, but also the great Colin Farrell, Christopher Plummer & Tom Waits.

Gilliam is one of the people that draw me to the theater without second thoughts: the guy is brilliant and shoots what I call «instant classics». Moreover, he works completely on his own terms, disregards budgets & «orders» and creates very personal pieces of film. I’m also reading that he’s back on the field to complete his infamous «Don Quixote» a movie he’s been trying to do for years unsuccefully (the production is a case study in-terms of things going wrong), however this time he seems to be making it happen: what a treat in these times of cinematic-boredom…
