The pic above is a smaller, cropped look at the hi-res still that was just thrown up over at the official website for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Hearing about any of Terry Gilliam's films can make one ooh and ahh over the possibilities, but there's nothing quite like the first good look at what he's molding with those amazing filmmaker hands of his -- especially when it's a morality tale about selling precious things for selfish means.
I think what I've always loved about Gilliam isn't the creative worlds he creates (those are great, don't get me wrong), but rather some of the small moments within them. A lot of people didn't like Tideland, but there was something about Jodelle Ferland's Jeliza-Rose talking to those doll heads that instantly charmed me.
Anyway, after all the trouble recently with the passing of Heath Ledger, I'm really glad that the project lives on -- for Gilliam, for Ledger, and for us, the eager fans out there.
