A brilliant, uncompromising and deliberate experiment set in a very specific time, in a very specific place, and under incredibly specific conditions, A Field in England is a wonderfully bizarre microcosm of abstraction.

A Field in England is strange, captivating, metaphoric, and utterly obtuse.

[Offers] a pervasive sense of unease, an almost physical sense of things being entirely and perversely not right with the film, as you're watching it.

Do you have to fully "understand" a film to enjoy it? No. Case in point: this movie.

And now for something completely different: a black comedy set in 17th-century England at the time of the Civil War and given a lift with some psilocybin mushrooms. Oliver Cromwell, meet Timothy Leary.

It's about shifting power games, mostly, and suggests a period film made by Samuel Beckett in one of his more playful moods.

[A Field in England] demonstrates how genuinely spellbinding cinema can be when it's wielded by an artist who doesn't so much play by his own rules as forego such restrictions entirely.

A challenging piece of work to be sure, due for eventual midnight-movie cultdom.
February 7, 2014
This is a deeply, at times exclusively visceral movie. It aims to wring out, mind-eff and visually beat up its viewers, and perhaps cast a malevolent spell in the process.

The maddest thing about this mad, mad movie: it has no reason to be consistent. But somehow it is.

As the story reaches an anguished kind of climax, so too does Wheatley go full Kubrick, abandoning narrative entirely for a sequence of full-blown psychotropic madness.

"A Field in England" tosses fascinating ingredients into its bubbling pot, and while the resulting dish - a blend of historical action drama, character study and psychedelic kaleidoscope - doesn't entirely cohere, it gives off a pungent aroma.

Complaints that very little actually happens in A Field in England are misdirected, in that it's a movie in which everything that matters takes place between the ears, both before and after the 'shrooms begin working their mind-warping magic
