I watched The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus last night. I’d tell you what happened, but I honestly have no idea. Apparently an immortal carnie has to save his daughter by collecting souls, which he sucks at, so he finds Heath Ledger/Johnny Depp/Jude Law (yes, all 3 of these guys played the same character. Yes, that was the *least* confusing part) to help him. Unfortunately Heath/Johnny/Jude is also some sort of deathy-immortally-sort of-beastie boy (and not the brass monkey kind), so in the end… uhm… the daughter goes to hell and then… suddenly reappears with a daughter of her own in the final scene, and the carnie guy lives happily ever after with his side-kick, a small statured man who continually jokes about *not* being a midget when he is clearly a little person (and no, it wasn’t a veiled criticism of political correctness. It was just odd).
Other odd occurrences:
– several rich women played on a swing
– buildings randomly blew up
– the actors kept taking turns swallowing whistles
SOOOooooo, while all of this was going on, it only made sense that I dust off the old crazy stitch…
