Reviews

A dark but humorous portrait of a young girl's reaction to emotional trauma directed by Terry Gilliam. After her drug-addicted mother's overdose, city kid Jeliza-Rose (Jodelle Ferland in an Oscar-nominated role), is taken by her well-meaning father to a house he'd purchased for his now-dead mother in a remote rural area. The youngster's behaviour becomes increasingly erratic as she struggles to deal with her new, rather grim reality. The local people are a truly motley bunch with more than a few bizarre idiosyncrasies, further fuelling Jeliza's imagination.

A brilliantly weird and eccentric take on Alice in Wonderland, despite Mr Gilliam professing no reference to that story. Although this is a book adaptation, there's not really much of a storyline, just wonderful performances by the leading lady (she was 9 at the time !) and a sort of macabre magic throughout.....the so called red queen is a warped christian embalmer, Mr Bridges is a scagged out rock and roller who's 'vacations' are facilitated by his daughter's hyper dermic preparations, until he OD's and is taxidermically delivered back to the one eyed witch who was his previous lover, aided by her loopy ward (this film's mad hatter ?). Instead of a glued out chapiterie, this one thinks he is an epileptic Sea Captain and the local train, a sea monster. Not giving the end away but there's undertones of Captain Nemo here and as with all Gilliam films, a kaleidoscopic mash of references and influences.

Terry Gilliam is possibly my favourite director, and I bought this film purely on his name, and knowing absolutely nothing else about it.

I sat down to watch it one evening on my own, and spent the next 1.5 hours on a nightmare trip being dragged through a horrific world of drug addiction and death. This film is truly disturbing in a way no horror flick can be. The little girl who is the central character seems to shine like an unsullied light amidst the dark depravity all around her, and then a kiss throws it all into confusion. The rare and occasional sparks of hope in the film get snuffed out leaving you feeling bleak and defiled. Even where there is a piece of humour, it is too dark to lift your spirits.

It terms of film quality, it is a beautifully created movie. The photography is superb, the imagery clear and crisper than you could possibly want. The acting is truly excellent, and Jeff Bridges went up in my estimation for doing this film.

I strongly recommend this films to others with a massive proviso: brace yourself - you will feel the need to wash when it's finished. I think that it is a brilliant film, but I only watched it once, and I never want to see it again.

Universal's Blu-ray release of Terry Gilliam's "Tideland" manages to present the film in it's correct aspect ratio of 2.35:1 whereas the previous DVD release wrongly cropped the film to 2.20:1, removing much information from the sides. Sadly, where this release is inferior is the paucity of extras. From the previous DVD release you get the "Getting Gilliam" documentary on the film's making, a brief making of feature and the trailer. Missing are Gilliam's introduction to the film, the Q&A with Gilliam and Mitch Cullin at the Hay Festival, further interviews with Gilliam and producer Jeremy Thomas, the commentary track with Gilliam and writer Tony Grisoni plus a raft of deleted scenes with commentary. Surely the extended capacity of Blu-ray could have accommodated these? Sadly this is yet another example of UK fans of Gilliam's films being short changed.

As for the film itself, it plays like a wilfully provocative cross between Alice In Wonderland and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The film looks great in it's proper ratio and HD picture quality. Such a shame the rest of this release falls so short.
