When it was released in 2009, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus caught the glint in our eyes and tapped into the souls of audiences everywhere. Beyond its surreal façade, symbols and personalities of the Imaginarium converge with life and death to become a meta-matrix experience. The characters of the movie become reflected by real world personalities and events.
Parnassus was Heath Ledger’s final Film, just after The Dark Knight. In each film, he became the embodiment of the hanged man and the fool. Channeling these archetypical energies would have a profound impact on his psyche. Could his final journeys on film and in life be good and evil playing out their final redemption?
Robert Phoenix explores the astrology of this film and reveals the Akashic connection of its characters and synopses to real-world personalities and events.
