The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

This is a week of cinematic imagination. Tuesday brought the arrival of Ben Stiller’s journeying remake of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and this Sunday marks the tenth anniversary of Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since Joel and Clementine raced through his mind trying to hide in memories and avoid permanent erasure. While that film strove to take something from the memory, there are countless films that strive to add to it, relishing in the many ways the imagination manifests, from a little girl’s fantastical journey into strength, to one man’s struggle to break out of a dream. Sadly, Figment isn’t taking us on this journey, but the imaginative movies that follow show the possibilities of the mind – as a childish pursuit, an adult coping mechanism, and a wonderfully idiosyncratic way of life.

After a brief rebuild, things get back in order and the Fat Guys take a moment to talk about the sure-to-be billion-dollar blockbusters coming out this fine, fine first week of January.



New photos have been released from Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, including new shots of Heath Ledger as well as his replacements, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law.

While we aren’t sure where it originated from on the web, we do know that our good friend David sent over a brand new pic of Heath Ledger in his final film, Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.



The folks over at Quick Stop Entertainment have gotten their hands on a teaser trailer of sorts for Terry Gilliam’s upcoming film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.


Toy stores released a rare collectible Heath Ledger as The Joker doll this week. Moments later the dolls were sold out, just like that.
