At the Movies

Today I finally go to do one of the things I miss most from the States, go to the movies. I saw Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. It came out in 2009, I'd seen it before, and I even own the DVD, but it was the only movie that was in English. The first time I saw it, I was disappointed. I can't remember why exactly. But this time I enjoyed it tremendously, especially Tom Waits's performance as the Devil. However, there were at least three places where the film suddenly jumped. I don't think anything major was edited out, but it was enough to cause some confusion, even for somebody who'd seen it before. And editing movies is the director and editor's job, not the theater's or, more likely, the government's.
