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.

A challenging piece of work to be sure, due for eventual midnight-movie cultdom.

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.

"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.

The film, Wheatley's fourth, feels both reckless yet fully controlled, a jest that's dead serious in the manner of Yorick's skull, which gets a sort of cameo in the final act.

Sorcery meets swordplay in powerful low-budget horror movie.

A defiantly unclassifiable cross-genre experiment that simultaneously reinvents and regurgitates low-budget British cinema as it goes.

This is a film built on sensation, misdirection and randomness. The result can be maddeningly obtuse, but it's also breathtakingly lovely and genuinely unsettling.
