WATCHING HEATH LEDGER IN DOCTOR PARNASSUS IS BITTERSWEET


I saw The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus for the first time on January 8, 2010.

Angels Or Devils by Dishwalla
Lyrics

This is the last time
that I'm ever gonna come here tonight
this is the last time - I will fall
into a place that fails us all - inside

I can see the pain in you
I can see the love in you
but fighting all the demons will take time
it will take time

the angels they burn inside for us
are we ever
are we ever gonna learn to fly
the devils they burn inside of us
are we ever gonna come back down
come around
I'm always gonna worry about the things that could make us cold

this is the last time
that I'm ever gonna give in tonight
are there angels or devils crawling here?
I just want to know what blurs and what is clear - to see

still I can see the pain in you
and I can see the love in you
and fighting all the demons will take time
it will take time

the angels they burn inside for us
are we ever
are we ever gonna learn to fly
the devils they burn inside of us
are we ever gonna come back down - come around
I'm always gonna worry about the things that could break us

if I was to give in - give it up
and then
take a breath - make it deep
cause it might be the last one you get
be the last one
that could make us cold
you know that they could make us cold
I'm always gonna worry about the things that could make us cold


It was two years ago now that Heath was shooting the scenes in London for Doctor Parnassus - the movie opened January 8, 2010 in nearly 600 theatres in the USA.

It was difficult watching for me....this movie, but also I am grateful it was finished. Difficult for probably obvious reasons. But while watching the final movie of Heath's, my mind would wander off thinking of what Heath was going through when shooting the movie. Pained about his relationship break-up, missing his daughter, worried about lawyers, battling the cold of London nights while having pneumonia, not able to sleep, but staying with his work.


It just is impossible not to do that, I think. I feel we should still have him here.


I couldn't take my eyes off Heath. If he was on the screen, I just stayed with him. I think I have to see the movie again, to actually watch the movie.

I loved Heath in the role and of course would have rather he was in the entire movie. I missed him playing all of Tony.

This is the first movie of Heath's that I have seen on a big screen. I am about the only one who stayed all through the credits....it was like I wanted to stay there as long as possible to be in his presence.

Our paper's review was quite good and had two Tony pictures of Heath and a huge colored photo of the Imaginarium stage. http://www.projo.com/movie_reviews/lb_imaginarium_01-08-10_LQH0G6P_v13.604a77.html
