Ben Wheatley…..A field in England


To steal a phrase from a proper film reviewer ‘ if you only see one black and white, civil war, trippy film this summer, make sure it’s this one’.

Ben Wheatleys’ latest film, ‘ A field in England’ released in cinemas, on TV ( channel 4) and via on-demand TV now is extraordinary, beautiful, puzzling and refuses to be boxed into any known genre.

4 men, a field, a crop of magic mushrooms, oh and the English civil war come together to make something which is always engaging and dares to be as experimental as it needs to be.

If you get the chance to see it on the big screen, go for it….the delicacy of the camera work demands that format.

The soundtrack is stunning and the performances are nuanced and totally right for the tone of this film.

Enjoy….I did.
