Tideland (2005)

So I watched a rather dull horror film called Case 39 (2009) at weekend, starring  Renee Zellwegger about a traumatised young girl played by the other-worldly Jodelle Ferland. Thankfully the film reminded me of the brilliant Tideland (2005) in which Ferland also stars. The film is seen through the eyes of Jeliza-Rose (sounding like Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind), her parents are drug addicts, but she creates a world of her own where she takes on different characters through play. The film is disturbing because it's difficult to maintain a childlike view of things as Jeliza-Rose does, but if you can grasp your inner child naivety it is an amazing film. Gilliam describes it as a cross between Alice In Wonderland and Psycho, how could you not be intrigued?

I would like my first house to be like this, but with a better paint job.

Here's the trailer, and oh yeah Jeff Bridges is in it so you know go watch it now!


  1. This film looks amazing! I feel a DVD night coming on, so I will look for this :)
