I've soured a bit on Terry Gilliam in recent years. The 2005 two-punch of "The Brothers Grimm" and "Tideland" couldn't have been more disappointing, especially as a long-awaited follow-up to 1998's fantastic adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas." With "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" however, it looks like Gilliam is back.
Putting aside the cast -- which features Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Colin Farrell, Christopher Plummer and Heath Ledger, in his final performance -- you've still got what looks like another delightfully twisted fantasy adventure, sort of like a cross between "12 Monkeys" and "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen." I know this because a new trailer dropped over the weekend. Now you can know it too.
