The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus left me feeling utterly disappointed. The plot was far from exciting. Like a rickety carriage driving through the dark woods, as shown in the movie, the story lurched forward in a rather pointless and haphazard fashion, and only served to confuse the audience even more. The ending was unsatisfying and abrupt, leaving my friend and I bewildered at the turn of events. And this is going to sound quite trivial but I felt that Heath Ledger, Jude Law and Colin Farrel made the character sleazy and shifty looking. Only Johnny Depp succeeded in making the character believable. Then again, I've always had a soft spot for the amazingly talented Johnny Depp. What redeemed the movie was the stunning visuals, and the talented supporting cast. Valentina ( the gorgeous Lily Cole) sparkled in her role, and the devil had me mesmerized- he was undeniably a magnetic villain.
