Smetchland Reviews: Imaginarium of Dr. Onassis

Heath Ledger od’d while working on this, so conveniently, this is now the second movie they get to call his last. Remember when they delayed the premier of Batman to ‘grieve’. Let people hold candle light vigils, then open the $theatre doors$. . . . . I’m gonna get blamed for dropping the bombs on Katrina. . . .Ok so the movie sucked. It just didn’t make any sense. Although it did have Christopher Plummer and Tom Waits which redeems it slightly. . .Basically, they scrambled to very artificially turn a couple short scenes with Ledger into a full length flick. The solution? The main character walks into magic land and his face keeps changing- sometimes he’s Colin Farell, sometimes he’s Jude Law. And just to make it more confusing, they film 2 mins worth of Johnny Depp who is somehow also the same guy and plaster him all over the marketing. Imdb page shows Ledger as the main character and Depp as top bill- completely not true! . . .This is a Colin Farell movie. . . .Shit! Who knows? Maybe all the pointless switching and weirdness were integral to some sort of ‘story’ i completely missed. I could be wrong, I really couldn’t tell what the fuck was going on, it was stupid.


Just a theory, suppose the movie’s hanging scene was actually him going in for a kiss and they superimposed the noose so we’d all marvel at the precognition and irony.
