The timing may be right tonight to do this: Cinema 21 is showing its final screenings of Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. I can go to the 7:00 show.

It's been a long time since I've gone into a Gilliam film knowing so little about its plot, or its mood. I know the behind-the-scenes drama -- Heath Ledger's death, the near-collapse of the production in the wake of his death, the scrambling needed to recover the film, the actors who banded together to finish Ledger's role, Gilliam getting injured during production -- but very little about what is in the script and the final film. There will be discovery, along with a wash of imagery.

I shall see if I will see it. If not tonight, then some other time some other way. But I want it to be tonight.

The movie is brilliant. You will not regret it. Tom Waits and Verne Troyer steal the show...
