I did not get this movie at all! I kept waiting for something to happen & for it to get better! It was a psychadelic trip of a movie and I was sober! The only thing that kept me watching till the end is the eye candy of the movie (Johnny Depp & Jude Law).

the special effects where pretty good but the acting and story line was rather boring and complicated (british, need i say more), i did get it but it was like too much nonsense and not enough serious acting. i got it on pay per view for $5 and still wish i'd saved the $5 and waited for it to hit regular tv. take my advise, you won't have to wait long, save your hard earned money and catch it on

I have loved most of Terry Gilliam's movies, but The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a lurching, lumbering, near incoherent mess. There are bits that are dazzling visually and Tom Waits as the Devil was a great choice, but I just wish Gilliam had spent more time coming up with a decent script.

Fabulous movie. Kept me entertained from beginning to end. It made you think a bit, so for those folks who like movies that need no questioning from its viewers, this one's not for you.

I'm a huge Tom Waits fan, but I just couldn't get into this movie. I think it's one of those films that will not withstand the test of time. One really needs to use their own imagination to understand Terry Gillam's world.
