Dragged down by a sputtering script and torpid pacing. Way too disturbing for kids and too weird for most grown-ups. Full Review

The worst that can be said of the first two-thirds of Tideland is that it is tiresome. Toward the end it becomes creepy, and not in a good way. Full Review

Rarely has an act of such cinematic cruelty as Tideland been perpetrated on filmgoers. Full Review

A murky swamp of a movie, Terry Gilliam's defiantly surreal Tideland finds every good idea drowning in an excess of indulgence. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Tideland is, by turns, a complete bore and a creepy experience. And I don't mean "creepy" in a positive sense. Full Review
