Critic Reviews for A Field in England
Laurie Rose, Wheatley's regular DP, brings to the film the same charged feel for landscape he so potently demonstrated in Sightseers.
Hallucinogenic black-and-white visuals, eerie sounds, sporadic splatter and potentially insufferable philosophising are blessedly leavened with earthy humour. Think Tarkovsky's Stalker meets Monty Python's Holy Grail.
A Field In England is mad monochrome mayhem that's utterly hypnotic.
It's about shifting power games, mostly, and suggests a period film made by Samuel Beckett in one of his more playful moods.
Audience Reviews for A Field in England
Four men walk over a field in 17th century England, in black and white. What follows is weirdness. While some frames are really beautifully filmed, other parts are so trippy you think you're in a music video. Even though it's no long film, it sometimes feels like it, and yet there is an odd fascination for what's going on up until the bloody finale. You're left to make up your own mind about what all the fuzz was all about. The beautiful end credits song makes you think you've seen a much better film than it actually is. File under: artsy fartsy or What the hell did I just watch?
A waste of time. Of memory. Of thought. A waste. A refutation of the idea of Anglo dominance in film, indeed, the very argument against that theory. And yet so well thought of? I don't get it. If one has access to magic mushrooms my advice would be to do those instead.
A pointless exercise in pointless nothingnes. Seriously, critics are bashing Only God Forgives and praising this? Go figure.
