I'm impressed by the all-star cast, but can't say much for the Fantasy genre. I'm not much of a fan, and after watching this, it'll probably stay that way. Stardust, The Golden Compass and all the films within this genre don't tickle my fancy. But, knowing that Heath ledger's role was recast to show 'alternate versions' of himself seems pretty sweet. However, reading the synopsis of this, I MAY just give this one a watch:
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is a modern-day fantasy adventure in which Dr. Parnassus has the extraordinary gift of inspiring the imaginations of others. Helped by his traveling theatre troupe, including his sarcastic and cynical sidekick Percy and versatile young Anton, Parnassus offers audience members the chance to transcend mundane reality by passing through a magical mirror into a fantastic universe of limitless imagination. However, Parnassus' magic comes at a price. For centuries he's been gambling with the devil, who is coming to collect his prize - Parnassus' precious daughter, Valentina on her birthday. - FirstShowing.net
