So tonight I enjoyed a lovely evening watching The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (TIDP). As the movie came to a close, my friends descibed the movie of having no plot. Sure to their credit the plot line was a bit disguised by the brilliant colors and daring effects. But I can't help but to think there is more. Perhaps the Devil is more than we have percieved him to be. He is more than just tricky but plays the game of winning and losing lives. The movie does seem to look at life as an object that can just easily be wasted and thrown to the gutter. I digress, the devil makes a deal with Dr. Parnassus for his daughter because the devil gave DP his wife and his youth back. The devil and DP's relationship began when the devil approached DP while he was a monk. DP explains to the devil that the world will always exist just as long as there is someone telling a story. The devil attempts to stop the storytelling; however DP realizes that there is still someone somewhere telling a story, it just doesn't have to be the story he is telling. Anywho, the idea seems to fall back on that life is unpredictable. No matter how much you anticipate and think your life will end the way you like, you forget to take into account that there are other people in your life that make footprints and can alter your life. You, can never hold the key to have your life planned because you cannot hold the key to anyones elses. Okay I may need to sleep on it and see what this comes to.
Let ya know soon.
