A Field In England is mad monochrome mayhem that's utterly hypnotic.
March 6, 2014
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.

Prepare to be mesmerized by "A Field in England," a movie of singular originality.

This hilarious, disgusting, brilliant and circular psychotronic odyssey is a blast from the submerged past.

Things get murky, even though very little actually happens.

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.
January 17, 2014
A defiantly unclassifiable cross-genre experiment that simultaneously reinvents and regurgitates low-budget British cinema as it goes.

Wheatley, clearly, is a visionary. He just needs to push himself harder, because this so-called experiment sees him operating very much within his comfort zone.

Like being punched in the face by your best friend for no reason.

What a unique film-maker Wheatley is becoming.

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.
