We gave it a B

Near the end of Tideland, heroine Ferland tells dad Bridges: ”We’ll be a happy family!” As Bridges, by then, is not only dead but has been stuffed by a mad taxidermist, this seems arguable. Nor is that the only doubt-inducing aspect of a movie that tracks the semi-romantic bond between Ferland’s prepubescent orphan and a mentally challenged adult. Still, Terry Gilliam’s grim fairy tale is another fantastic(al) showcase for his visual talents.
EXTRAS include commentary and docs larded with entertaining contributions from Gilliam.
