This morning, Slashfilm‘s Brendon Connelly posted three clips from Terry Gilliam‘s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which just screened at Cannes and wowed the critics, many of whom framed their reviews around this being Heath Ledger‘s final film. 

The first clip features the recently departed actor donning a mask that gives me the creeps/flashbacks to Eyes Wide Shut and Amadeus, and wooing a small crowd of curious bystanders.  I couldn’t help but notice a few tiny Joker-like nuances in the way Ledger moves in this scene.  Still hadn’t shaken the clown when he shot this, I suppose.

The other clips, which you can see after the jump, are a little more .  One features Christopher Plummer as the titular character, and a lot of cool SFX that’s a little LOTR, a little Harry Potter, and a lot Gilliam.  The other features actress Lily Cole doing her best Lolita while Verne "Mini-Me" Troyer drives a horse-drawn carriage.  Not as adorable as one would think.  This is Gilliam, after all.  He could make the Muppet Babies off-putting.
