I'm not a writer; but I do know a worthwhile film when I view it.
Instead of boring you folks (Grimm and Jimmy D.) with my thoughts (they don't keep the viewer in mind anyway), I'd rather you'd read the review at this URL:
Even "Christianity Today" gave "Parnassus" a thumb's up. In fact, the NY "Times" supported Gilliam's latest effort...though the readers were more enthusiastic.
My advise to you all: see this flim again...and do a little bit of reading: the "eternal story" being told by the good doctor is an ancient myth...that had been told in many ancient cultures...
People not understanding this film...also failed to understand "El Topo" when it first debuted.
