Can You Put a Price on Your Dreams?: The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus: a very dreamy film, dealing with imagination and, what else but dreams themselves! The Imaginarium is a creation, a mobile unit belonging to the title character (Dr. Parnassus) in which one enters literally the world of his or her imagination, a waking-dream, if you will... It is dangerous to bring your plus one with you, however, for two simultaneous imaginations creates competition and... well, we all dream alone normally anyway...

This brief scene, featuring the beginning of Tony's (Heath Ledger) speech in which he attempts to persuade audience members to donate money to the crew members and enter the Imaginarium; it demonstrates the perception that the experience of dreaming offers priceless benefits.
