A young girl named Jeliza-Rose is transported to her grandparents' farm following her mother's drug overdose. Once there, she embarks on a fantastic voyage into a world of bog men and disembodied Barbie heads.
Tideland is a disturbing, and mostly unwatchable effort from Terry Gilliam.
Honest, unflinching and worthy of reappraisal.
The movie itself feels like an overstuffed burrito: Nicola Pecorini's cinematography has verve but no visual sense, and the film's self-important pace turns deadening over the long haul.
Surreal, inspired cinema from Gilliam that refuses to sugar-coat the dark imagination of children.
The literal train wreck that caps the film is an apt metaphor for this hallucinatory fiasco.
Becomes an excruciating exercise in gothic excess and progressively more disgusting imagery.
...in the midst of all the perverse chaos, a story emerges that is easily the most tender and even sentimental in all of Gilliam's work.
Pointless and an excruciating bore.
A triumph of costuming and production design over plot, theme and main characters.
It seems, from the flat-out filmic disaster of "Tideland," that director Terry Gilliam is intent on ensuring a decisive end to his checkered filmmaking career.
