It's not a particularly successful question mark, though your mileage may vary on its interpretational qualities. After all, people can pull meaning out of anything, which is likely Wheatley's intent with this tiring film.
Whether you find it startling and audacious or indulgent and incoherent, there is no denying it is an accomplished work that soars as bravado filmmaking in its exploration of deep psychological torment.
A Field In England is bold, experimental and unapologetically a work of strong, abstract surrealism. All the tenants of Wheatley's cinema are present but the film demonstrates his desire to avoid being pigeonholed as a one note filmmaker.
Despite its flaws, A Field in England is an original, adventurous, imaginative, compelling work, a rare enough thing in a British cinema stifled by formulaic scripts and timorous financing entities, to deserve being celebrated.
A deeply strange, beautifully shot horror with strong performances and stunning sound design work, though it's also frustratingly obtuse and significantly less accessible than the director's previous films.
It bears several of Wheatley's stylstic trademarks - dry, sardonically witty dialogue; stomach-churning violence; and a painterly eye for the English countryside - but achieves something quite different from his first three features.
