it's called "tideland", and i don't think he was able to find a distributor for it.

if you like his other work, i highly reccomend it. i think the reviewers were all smoking crack. it's based on a novel (which i have't read). it's a take on alice in wonderland of sorts, about a 10 year old girl left to fend for herself in a rural area. it's quite fanciful, from the perspective of an imaginative child. some of the reviewers misinterpreted that as the girl eing crazy, but she's actually the most sane (main) character. she's decidedly not crazy, as a matter of fact, her fantasies are a combination of entertainment and coping.

and if you read any reviews mentioning pedophilia, that's bullshit too. they're referring to her kissing a brain damaged adult who if anything would be mentally *younger* than her.

i think reviewers just hate terry gilliam. they hated fear and loathing in las vegas too. and as dark as they say this one is, it really ends up etter for the kid than the ending of time bandits (which i don't think anyone considers dark)

I find, generally, that critics do not understand Terry Gilliam.

"Contact" w/ Jodie Foster. This movie totally sucks, but I'm going to plop into the dvd
drive and watch it again. Why?, I don't know. (I prolly won't last thru the whole thing).

...but you get to meet the guy who would've been a priest except that he couldn't keep that damn vow of celibacy...

Why do I get the feeling that I'm the only person who liked "Contact?"

Certainly there were elements of the movie that were hokey, but when I saw it, it was the first "hard" sci-fi film I'd seen in the theaters in the past 15 years or so. Also, though I haven't read any of Carl Sagan's books, the theme behind the movie kept in tune with Sagan's whole worldview in "Cosmos," which I enjoy as well.

i liked it a lot, too, despite the hokeyness. it ended up having a fairly different message than did the book, but it was still enjoyable.

Rarely do good books and good movies share the same plot.

the movie was fine, except for the damn would-be priest who couldn't keep a vow of celibacy.

but aside from that all, i thought this was going to make good "Knowing Ethan" fodder.

the way i see it, they don't have to because they're totally different media. but i also think that my favorite movie could never be based on a book i've read, particularly if that meant i knew the whole story.

nadia, you miss the news this year?  keeping that vow is apprently no longer a necessity.

Priests have not kept vows of celibacy for centuries.

Same with nuns.

History has plenty of stories where whores complained of the competition.

yes, but most of them aren't characters in "contact", right?
