Don't fall asleep!
17 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

I couldn't make it through the first half of the film.

Even after 30 minutes I was wondering whether it was worth carrying on towards the end.

With most movies, I'll watch until the end credits roll, even when the film is bad or average, just so I can form a full opinion.

With "A Field In England", however, the novelty and enjoyment wears off quite quickly due to the very slow pace and it's hard to see the kind of direction this film wanted to go in. Having turned off the movie halfway through and watched , I had to look up the plot summary to see what I had missed, which, in the end was just a very ambiguous finale.

I'm glad I didn't force myself to sit through the whole runtime but also disappointed that I couldn't seem to pluck anymore enjoyment from the film and didn't have reason to watch to the very end.

Sure, "A Field In England" may have a hidden subtext or meaning, but it's way too buried for anyone to see and extrapolate how it would come to fruition in a way that's purposeful and makes sense.
