Nach dem Screening in Cannes sind nun die ersten Kritiken zum kommenden Terry Gilliam Film The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, dem letzten Film mit Heath Ledger, online. Die meisten davon sind negativ, aber besonders schockiert zeigen sich die Kritiker von der ersten Szene mit Ledger, in der er mit einem Seil um den Hals von einer Londoner Brücke hängt:

BBC: The imaginary world he's created is awe-inspiring, but it's ultimately designed for an art house audience.

Entertainment Weekly: The plot's a mess of disconnected episodes, and the circus-y visual style adds to a feeling of ... quiet desperation.

The Guardian: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is an awful mess, and the untimely death of Heath Ledger during its making only focuses attention on it for the wrong reasons.

Times Online: The film could have benefited with a lot more hard story and a lot less whimsy. But it is a visually stunning watch.

Variety: The film possesses strong curiosity value bolstered by generally lively action and excellent visual effects.
