2330 hours
Cinema 3
Greenbelt 3, Makati City
HBS

How do we put this? This movie is somewhat cool, somewhat weird, and somewhat disheartening. This is because, well, you see Heath Ledger in it. Sucks for such great talent to die so early.

Anyhoo, it is also disheartening because I think the plot is just too darned convoluted. I think this has something to do with Heath Ledger dying while filming this movie. They say Heath suffered from some emotional and mental anguish because of his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight. If you watch closely his acting in The Imaginarium, you’d notice some “Joker” type of acting especially when his character, Tony, first presented the show to the crowd.

At one end, you’d think this is really how Heath Ledger acts. But then again, maybe it is because The Joker character really rubbed in his life. Sigh.
