The literal train wreck that caps the film is an apt metaphor for this hallucinatory fiasco.

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.

Becomes an excruciating exercise in gothic excess and progressively more disgusting imagery.

A triumph of costuming and production design over plot, theme and main characters.

The film drags in the middle and feels excruciatingly slow and repetitive in the final stretch.

Tideland's unmodulated frenzy has the effect of a prolonged shriek, too high and shrill for individual words to make themselves heard.

Not for the faint-hearted, to be sure, yet amid the swaying chaff there are moments of piercing grace and beauty when we're reminded of the lost, lonely child at the heart of this tale.

It's crazy, dangerous and sometimes gorgeous: a feast of nuttiness that takes you, for a while, over the edge.

The movie is brave, strong, deeply felt, and frequently brilliant, and it does exactly what it sets out to do. But what it sets out to do is distressingly unpleasant.

Despite a few psychologically insightful touches about how children learn to survive misery, Tideland is borderline unwatchable, although, as is true of all Gilliam movies, it certainly is different.

Gilliam drains any remaining signs of life and humanity from his adult characters, underscoring their grotesqueness with expressionistic camera work and shock-tactic effects.

This time [Gilliam] has stumbled into a different no-manā(TM)s land, the one between the merely bad and the completely indefensible.

James Berardinelli
Top Critic IconTop Critic

What we get, sadly, is easily the worst production Gilliam has ever been involved in, either behind the camera or in front of it. Tideland is, by turns, a complete bore and a creepy experience. And I don't mean 'creepy' in a positive sense.

The movie dies early on, but it keeps hanging around, looking a little more rotten with each new scene.

Gilliam has suffered more than his share of butchered projects, but with this exercise in kamikaze auteurism, he appears to have made exactly the mess he wanted.

Gilliam's brash disregard for conventional narrative rhythms and structures is one of the many thrills of his best work, but here his freewheeling navigations veer so far off-road that the passenger is left exhausted and bewildered.

Tideland sees the fanciful helmer overindulging his dark side with a slice of Gothic nastiness.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

A misconceived washout of a darkly gothic story of madness, addiction and child abuse made all the more unpleasant by Gilliam's trademark intense visual style.
