thanks a lot! It's THE most awesome Comic movie ever. And it was the best movie released last year. But of course nobody would dare give it an Oscar... Heath Ledger is simply epic. He deserves every single one of the tons of fanart he's been getting around here.
"At the center of the clan is Doctor Parnassus himself (Christopher Plummer, with a Lear-like countenance), who a thousand years ago made a pact with the devil for immortality. The downside to the bargain, however, as Parnassus is reminded when the devil comes to collect in the person of Mr. Nick (Tom Waits, forever the hipster); is that, when the doctor's daughter Valentina (Lily Cole) turns 16, she becomes Satan's property. Unfortunately, her birthday is imminent, so Parnassus makes another deal, which allows him to save his daughter if he can deliver five souls to his alternate world of the imagination."
