Critic Reviews for A Field in England

All Critics (72) | Top Critics (30) | Fresh (62) | Rotten (10)

  • 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.

  • It's the English Civil War on magic mushrooms!

  • 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.

  • It's dementia for its own sake, an empty head-trip.

Audience Reviews for A Field in England

  • Jul 12, 2016
    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?

    Sometimes, weird is its own reward.

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail MEETS Game of Thrones MEETS Bergman's Persona MEETS that film by von Trier about the planet swallowing the earth, I forget the name. And it's quite amusing. For once, English prurience has its place.

    This film was just to surreal for me, especially after 'Sightseers'. The whole thing looks beautiful and I applaud the film-making skill but it asked too much of me as an audience member and I wasn't in the mood to follow where it led.
