#728 The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus... with Lily Cole

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus was Heath Ledger's last film. He died one third of the way through so they had to recast him with Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell, who all played different transformations of the one character. Sound confusing? You're not alone, but the whole film looks like a fantasy masterpiece a la Pan's Labyrinth. And it has Lily Cole as the good Doctor's daughter/Heath's love interest. I love her exaggerated gasp at 26 seconds.

Exaggerated?! I always gasp like that.

The special effects look pretty incredible.

Aw Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell gave their earnings from this film to Matilda. It's been put in a trust for her - isn't that so sweet?

I don't understand. I just got up, looked at this and I'm blubbering like a baby. Again.
