I love Terry Gilliam - from his work with Monty Python (will come back to that one in another post) to Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Muchausen. even The Brothers Grimm (although not his best work in my opinion, but still beautiful). I have not seen Time Bandits yet but its on my Netflix list.
But check out these stills from his latest work, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. STUNNING!! I am going to go into overload just trying to take it all in when I go to see it in theaters.
Visit the official site and watch the trailer at http://www.doctorparnassus.com
The film's release date is set for Christmas Day 2009.
