Tideland tells the story of young Jeliza-Rose, who holes up with her dad, Noah, in an abandoned Texas farmhouse. After Noah dies, Jeliza-Rose seemingly disappears into a fantasy world in which she talks chiefly to her headless Barbie dolls, romances a disturbed adult and reports home to her dad’s leathery corpse. Gilliam’s films are not for everyone; he describes Tideland as a cross between Alice in Wonderland and Psycho. He also considers it his most tender film. Gilliam and our guest Tony Grisoni worked together on this and many other films over the past years.
