I'm not sure where this belongs, so I wil drop it he too.

We watched The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus yesterday. It's Terry Gilliam's craziness at its best. Probably not a movie for everyone, but we really liked it. But... Of course there's a but. It was way harder than I thought to watch Heath. This strange longing, dark feeling kept with me through all the movie and I don't think I could watch it as I would have if it was any other movie. No way to be objective about this one. And I also don't think I will watch it again. M really liked it though, he is a Gilliam fan and this movie kind of sums his world up, you can see so much Monty Python in it too. Excellent cast, Tom Waits is a surprise for me and I feel really thankful to Depp, Law and Farrell for honouring Heath as they did.

Hello Elena!

I saw IoDP when it was in the theaters.  Really enjoyed it, thought it was fun and surreal.  Like you said, not a film for everyone, and to be honest, if it wasn't for Heath in the film, I probably wouldn't have seen it at all.  I'm glad I did.

I'm not a movie goer at all, but I've managed to see three of Heath's films.  He was fantastic in all.

Brokeback
Dark Knight
Imaginarium

Those three are incredible films, I would add Candy to that list and you have my four Heath films.

"Candy"...oh Dan... I adore you.
Fabulous movie. My all time favorite ("sorry BBM" !)movie of Heaths.
Michelle was pregnant with Matilda at the time of him making it...
and he used to keep on phoning her up and asking if everything was OK
with her. If you watch the movie .....you will understand his reasons for doing this.
His best ...most convincing role. The last scene where he weeps is just
as worthy of praise as the last scene in BBM.
Wonderful.
Wanting him to come back... before anyone notices
part of the world has not moved...since he left.

Heath would have been 40 on Thursday. How sad to think he's not here.  :'(
 

He played Ennis as a 40 year old of course, and I always remember saying as I watched that in the film, that heath will look nothing like Ennis did at 40 when hes 40 ...
