Total Film 09-21-2009 3 stars out of 5 -- "PARNASSUS is pure Gilliam, whisking dashes of BRAZIL, MUNCHAUSEN, THE FISHER KING and added autobiographical reflections into unruly but fitfully visionary fantasy terrain."
Entertainment Weekly 01-08-2010 "[The actors] dust the director's characteristically squirrelly, dense, and visually overloaded project with the sparkle of celebrity....Individual scenes are dazzling..." -- Grade: B-
Empire 05-01-2010 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's rather nice to see Gilliam in full flight, making the sort of twisted fairy tale that only he could tell."
