Default The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (UK - Lionsgate)

I received The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus last weekend from Amazon UK.

It's region B locked as Lionsgate UK releases tend to be.

Basic Specs:
- Region B locked BD50
- Video: MPEG-4 AVC 1080p / 23.976 fps / 1.85:1 (OAR)
- Audio: DTS-HD MA 5.1 (24-bit) + 2 DD 2.0 audio commentary tracks
- Subs: Optional English SDH

Extras:
- Feature Introduction by Terry Gilliam
- Heath Ledger & Friends
- Heath Ledger Interview (from a radio program with images from the movie)
- Heath Ledger Wardrobe Test with Optional Commentary by Terry Gilliam
- Director's Commentary
- Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary by Terry Gilliam
- The Imaginarium of Terry Gilliam
- Behind the Mirror
- Building the Monastery
- UK Premiere Featurette
- "The Drunk" Multi-Angle Featurette

Most extras are in 1080p / 23.976 but there are two 1080i50 video streams on the disc as well. One of them is a 51s promotional intro (before the menu) for "Action for Children". The other is the UK Premiere Featurette (12m:32s).

As the special effects are so stylised, it's one of the few films where they actually look good in HD.

Yep, the effects and everything looked very nice. PQ was excellent except for the black levels appearing to be a bit elevated.

I enjoyed the movie a lot as well and the cinematography was great. Strong performances especially by Christopher Plummer and Lily Cole and Heath Ledger was very good too.

USA release is region A/B, according to art. why no C is beyond me.

Which appears to be intentional, the Sony USA release has the same issue. Having seen the UK disc, I believe it's Gilliam experimenting with lighting.

i can verify and agree that the black levels look too bright on the USA release, as well, and even if it is an intentional choice, it doesn't translate well. it's still a MARVELOUS transfer (review will be up soon for the USA release), but the blacks make it look off at times. also a very interesting and fun film, that has good replay value and depth to it. region a, region b, it's worth getting.
