Well, "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" is the type of movie you have to watch to fully grasp, because words hardly do it justice. And this is exactly what you'd expect to come from the imagination of director Terry Gilliam; something that is so odd and bizarre, yet so stunningly beautiful and coherent at the same time. It is like a surreal mixture of "Alice in Wonderland", "The Chronicles of Narnia", "Monty Python" and "Harry Potter" all rolled into one fabulous mixture.

Not only does it have a great storyline, but "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" is also accompanied by fabulous acting performances by those cast for the various roles. And you have some really big names, talented actors and actresses cast for this movie. But even more so, it is accompanied by some really incredible visual effects and ideas.

And the costumes, wow! Those alone are enough to watch the movie, it was nothing short of spectacular.

That being said, it is perhaps a fact that this movie is not suitable for just anyone. I am sure that the oddity and absurdity of it will have some people disapproving. I, however, was drawn in and was enjoying every single minute of the approximate 2 hours the movie ran for.

"The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" is truly a movie that you should give a chance and watch it if you haven't already seen it.
