Heath Ledger

The Imaginarium of Anastasia Masaro

user
 Interview with Production Designer Anastasia Masaro on The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus (2009). Other than being the last film that Oscar winning actor Heath Ledger acted in, this has to be one of the most visually stunning films I've ever seen. David Lynch and Tim Burton have some serious rivalry here on cinematic surrealism. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus (2009) is like a walk through a Dali meets Ernst painting, on Absinthe!  ME: Hi Anastasia, thank you so much for taking time to...

The Doctor Is In by Kimberly Deisler...

Being a long time Monty Python fan, I thought I was ready for Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus but I was wrong. From the first frame to the last, I was taken for a ride I thought could only be produced from the consumption of some really strong brownies or sugar cubes. "What must it be like to be in Gilliam's head?" I wondered. "Crowded!" I concluded. While the story isn't something new, guy vs. devil, the journey was extraordinary. Its probably bett...

Of course, this does not mean that we can expect to s...
