Inside The Mirror of Imaginarium,You can get what you deserve

 As  I have said above, Dr.parnassus is the owner of an ancient theater that offers & advocates to  everyone who has the  courage to go on a  journey that   amazing through a world of illusions & dreams.  When  someone enters the mirror  and  it is a  portal or entrance  to the  (dream) imagination of a person, in the mirror it is  someone who has entered into   the mirror The space in  the mirror will be shown its desires in  the form of imagination (dreams) like it is in fantasy. 

But for a  person who has a  lust for the flesh in  himself then  he  will feel hell in it if he  chooses the wrong  path.

  That's the  imaginarium in the film directed  by Terry Gilliam. 

Who are the actors who took part in this film?

Heath ledger(Tony)-Digantikan oleh Johnny Depp karena ledger Meninggal dunia ,Verne Troyer ( Percy),Lily Cole ( Valentina),Andrew Garfield ( Anton ), Tom Waits ( Nick The Devil ),Christopher Plummer ( Dr.Parnassus ).

Well, of   the  several actors  you may know, Johnny Depp is one of  the actors who enlivened  this film   as  a stunt double because Heath Ledger passed away while this film was still in  cultivation process.


Self interpretation

If you have ever watched The Hourglass   sanatorium 1973, I think the film the imaginarium of doctor parnassus almost  resembles and has similarities  to the 1973  film the  hourglass sanatorium  which was worked on by a  Polish director  , Wojciech Has.   If  you have watched the movie  , maybe you will assume that Terry Gilliam was inspired by  the surrealist movie  The Hourglass Sanatorium. Indeed,  if we look at it in detail, the visual  transition effect contained in the movie The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus almost resembles the   movie the hourglass, and with a narrative complex enough   to  understood by the audience.

It  is clear that The  Imaginarium is one of the  psychedelic films, because the  visual  effects and narrative in  the film use the  concept of  surrealism so that the  film the imaginarium of doctor parnassus is rather complex    to   be understood because it combines elements that are not easy for the general public to understand  .

If I   can give a  rating for   this movie, I would suggest that   for friends who like psychedelic movies & midnight movies you must watch this movie  at night  while enjoy the night.
