By turns fascinating and intolerable.

The A.V. Club
It's no "trip through the dark to appreciate the light." It's a nightmare from start to finish.

Village Voice
Gilliam has suffered more than his share of butchered projects, but with this exercise in kamikaze auteurism, he appears to have made exactly the mess he wanted.
38
Tideland is, by turns, a complete bore and a creepy experience. And I don't mean "creepy" in a positive sense.
30
A misconceived washout of a darkly gothic story of madness, addiction and child abuse made all the more unpleasant by Gilliam's trademark intense visual style.

Variety
Dragged down by a sputtering script and torpid pacing. Way too disturbing for kids and too weird for most grown-ups.
25
Borderline unwatchable, although, as is true of all Gilliam movies, it certainly is different.
20
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.
10
Salon
The misanthropic nadir of the director's crash-and-burn career.

Entertainment Weekly
Dour, absurdist, gruesomely awful.
