Terry Gilliam with severed hands (see Part 1)
and a red triangle over his third eye
In Terry Gilliam's film Dr. Parnassus, Heath Ledger gets a red triangle over his third eye as well.
Much silly ado has been made of the "Luciferian Markings" on Heath Ledger's forehead in Terry Gilliam's film Dr Parnassus. However, before Gilliam directed Ledger in Parnassus, he donned similar makeup himself in another one of his films, The Life of Brian.
Johnny Depp steps into the film after Ledger's death - Depp himself having played Willy Wonka in a fairly terrible remake. The original Wonka film depicts a 2001-like Stargate along a Chocolate River.
Lastly, the movie Phantasm depicts a literal Stargate that is protected by a silver ball with Mercury-like wings. This same shape and character is present in the other films when they experience a Stargate brought on by Ego-Death or "Temple Destruction"
Following some of the strange and beautiful synchronicities of these films, we notice a pattern develop. Perhaps if we let go of our fear, we can navigate the river and ride it to our own opened mind.
Or something. :)
Here. I made you a video. Please enjoy:
Bonus fun-fact: Life of Brian was put out by George Harrison's film company "HANDmade Films!" which also made Gilliam's Time Bandits, which we'll look at in our next installment.
A week or so ago, I made this other Harrison connection:
