Following the death of her drug-addicted mother, a whimsical young girl follows her chemically dependent father to a remote prairie house to discover a wondrous world of magical fireflies and nocturnal bog men in this hallucinatory childhood fantasy from visionary filmmaker Terry Gilliam. Noah (Jeff Bridges) is a burnt-out rock star whose post-superstar voyage to obscurity is hastened by a serious drug addiction that is also shared with his wild-eyed wife (Jennifer Tilly). When the Noah's increasingly erratic wife suffers a fatal overdose, the faded rock star opts to escape the painful reality by retreating to a ramshackle remote home with his young daughter, Jeliza-Rose (Jodelle Ferland). Left to her own devices as her father stumbles about the grasslands in a drug-induced haze, Jeliza-Rose soon ventures into her own fantasy land before making the acquaintance of mentally challenged youth Dickens (Brendan Fletcher). As the two become fast friends and Jeliza-Rose joins the swimsuit-clad Dickens in defeating the menacing shark that traverses the nearby railways, the pair are watched over by Dickens' black-clad sister, Dell (Janet McTeer), who acts as Dickens' guardian and whose overly enthusiastic interest in the art of taxidermy borders on obsessive.

For his 10th film, Gilliam goes down the rabbit hole, into a deranged Alice in Wonderland-esque film. Complete with doll heads, a talking squirrel, and a little girl that does WHAT? Gives her Dad his Heroin shots. This is no kids film. So parents, please don't warp your kid's minds with this. But for the rest of us, Tideland fits the strange nostalgia we all sometimes need in our lives. Served Terry Gilliam Style.

I went down to the city in order to see this and I was not dissapointed one bit. Wickedly bizzare and yet visually beautiful. Terry Gilliam's finest movie since Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. I reccomend that any hardcore Gilliam fan see this at once.
