SPOILER ALERT: I have no idea what happens.

8 Dec

the translation is, roughly, "the more drugs you take, the more this movie makes sense"

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…

 

 

 

…and work on this joker-y sort of scarf, which I’m thinking would be the *perfect* gift for my shrink.  Or possibly Johnny Depp.  Hmm… Johnny Depp’s shrink?… })i({
