London Fields (2015)
Critic Reviews for London Fields
So comprehensively does the film fail to represent the labyrinthian literary wonders of Amis' book that it scarcely seems worthwhile to detail its universal shortcomings.
This spiraling story of sex, murder, darts, premillennial dread and authorial anxiety becomes a veritable hash of garish, disassociated tableaux.
It's like a music video, cretinously portenteous, in the worst possible taste.
London Fields overflows with interesting ideas but they are frequently buried under lurid fantasy sequences, blunt-edged satire and the sense that it is much more amused by its own wild daring than we are.
Whatever director Matthew Cullen and writer Roberta Hanley have cooked up with this screen adaptation, it's nothing if not a debauched hodgepodge for the senses that dares you to abandon it at almost every turn.
