This new Terry Gilliam film will surely get major play because it features the final performance of Heath Ledger, but that aside, the visual side of the movie looks mind-blowing. Add in Colin Farrell, Johnny Depp and Jude Law stepping in to help out with the lead role (the film had not yet finished shooting when Ledger died) and Tom Waits as the devil and there just might be something worth checking out in there—though it has been a long time since Gilliam directed something great.
