Brilliant - Richard Harris is outstanding
without a doubt one of the best acting performances I've ever seen from Richard Harris ,mesmerising from start to finish
A nice film with strong performances from Richard Harris, Sean Bean, John Hurt, and Brenda Flicker. Great score and cinematography too
All the characters are just stupid fucking idiots who deserved everything they got. It's generally a bad sign when you're rooting for the bad guys in a movie; I just wanted Bull McCabe to fail at everything he did, he was such a self-righteous indignant jackass. And what the fuck was John Hurt doing? A grating, irritating mess.
A deeply sorrowful tragedy about an old man whose sole purpose of existence in guarding the land his father painstakingly nurtured into fertile fields brings him losses far beyond the price of his heritage.
Richard Harris delivers a magnificent performance of Shakespearian tragic dimensions as the Terrible Old Man of the the grim, powerful film, The Field. This picture has many of the same plot elements as John Ford's The Quiet Man, but where Ford's movie shows the Hollywood fantasy of what every Irish American like Ford would like Ireland to be, The Field depicts the reality of centuries of suffering scraping a near starvation minimum in the best years from the soil taken by foreign landlords centuries before and the horror of the Great Famines that plagued Ireland in the 19th century whose effects are felt there to this day. The beauty of the land is shown in both films, and the audible haunting beauty of the music is heard in both, but the mood of The Quiet Man's soundtrack is joyful and charming, like Ford's sentimental film, while the melancholic tones of The Field reflect the great sorrows of Ireland's fatalistic reality in the 1930s, as does the 1990 movie. Not an enjoyable experience to watch, but the cathartic experience of a great tragedy like Othello, where a man also loses what he loves most through his obsession.
This film explores similar themes to Manon of the Spring and Jean de Florette. Those films do it far more effectively. Harris is fantastic as could be expected. Any shortcomings are not attributable to him.
This really has to be seen due to the unbelievable performance of Richard Harris, and for me one of the greatest in the history of cinema. A great comical turn from John Hurt as the village simpleton.
Awesome movie, loved it!
Superb performance by Harris. Well worth watching, and the bad reviewers shouldbe ashamed of themselves. If only for Harris's powerhouse performance, this is worth viewing.
