Tideland

Genre: Drama; Starring: Jeff Bridges, Jodelle Ferland, Jennifer Tilly; Director: Terry Gilliam; Author: Terry Gilliam, Tony Grisoni; Release Date Limited: 10/13/2006; Runtime (in minutes): 120; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: THINKFilm

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.
