In his 2009 fantastical opus, Terry Gilliam proved the maxim of his titular character, "you can't stop a story being told." Where any other filmmaker would see the tragic death of his star before the end of filming as a sign to close production, Gilliam enlisted some of Heath Ledger's closest friends to complete the movie and give it a bold new identity. Brian and Cargill step through the mirror and delve into the philosophical wizardry contained in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus!
