Gilliam strikes back
17 July 2006 | by yassassinSee all my reviews

Without a doubt, this is Gilliam's strongest vision since Brazil. It's also a movie that has to be seen on the big screen so don't miss it, if it comes near you.

People may find it too long, too obscene.. there are moments that are definitely hard to swallow but hey, that's our problem, not Gilliam's. Then there are moments of pure joy.

And the ending will leave you shaken to the core. It's surreal and true at the same time and it encapsulates the whole experience. Didn't read the book this was based on but from what I've heard, Gilliam is pretty much spot on.

I really need to see Tideland again soon. I really need this little vacation.
