A masterpiece - go see it
This is Terry Gilliam's dark masterpiece. It's a brilliant film--there
are fabulous, fantastic, surrealistic visual effects; gorgeous
cinematography; and stunning performances by an amazing cast of
consisting of both famous stars and lesser known (but excellent)
actors. It's in the vein of the great European surrealistic movies like
Fellini's "8 1/2" or "Satyricon". But--if you're not open to a mind
bending, almost psychedelic fantasy and a plot with strange twists and
turns that can be challenging to follow, this won't be for you. The
cast is terrific--I mean, Tom Waits plays "Old Scratch"--how can you
lose? Christopher Plummer is excellent in the title role; Heath
Ledger's last performance is stellar. Lily Cole, Johnny Depp, Andrew
Garfield, Jude Law, Verne Troyer, and Colin Farrell are also very good.
The costumes and sets are gorgeous, though often in a dark and grungy
way. By the way--it also ends up being a story about ethical choices in
life and how some people are very misleading. Probably not material for
a box office hit, sadly, as this film is probably too unusual for most

Terry Gilliam finally back
It is really a shame, that Heath Ledger has left this world. Seeing him
in this movie and his performance in the Batman movie (The Dark
Knight), you really wish you could see him in more movies. Which of
course will not happen. We can even be glad that we have the chance to
watch his performance on this movie.
Heath Ledger had shot most of his scenes already, before he passed
away. Terry Gilliam got convinced by the crew and the cast of this
film, that he should continue in Memory of Heath L. And so he came up
with a few new ideas, how this movie should be. And if you have no idea
about Heath Ledger passing away and that whole story, you might even
think the movie was planned like that from the get go.
It's a crazy world, that Terry shows us, which won't answer many
questions at the beginning and will leave with a few at the end. An
end, that is really great and comes pretty close to the "Brazil"
brilliance. The whole movie seems like a comeback. Not that Terry G.
was gone, but his Grimm Brothers movie did hurt his reputation.
After this excruciating experience (it took quite a few years from
start to finish), Terry is planning to finally film one of his dream
projects. Don Quixote! Johnny Depp will not play the lead (he was cast
back when Terry tried and couldn't finish, watch "Lost in La Mancha", a
great documentary about the "Un-making" of that movie) and it's not out
yet, who will play the lead role. Heath Ledger would have been great
