The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)

A traveling theater company gives its audience much more than they were expecting.

A fantasy with some spectacular visuals and an adequate star cast, but the coherence of the story is often shattered into bits which makes it difficult to follow and creates tedium.

Maltin**1/2: "Visually impressive metaphoric muddle offers colorful set pieces, if not a fully satisfying  story. Ledger died during production, so Depp, Law, and Farrell play his alter egos on the other side of the mirror - a conceit that actually works to the film's benefit."
