A multilayered visual feast..
13 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay so I went to the premier of this at my local PictureHouse on the 5th with my partner and as soon as it finished we headed home for a second dose on Film 4. This is not usual behaviour for us and demonstrates just how intriguing a piece of art A Field in England is. I have seen some reviews on here that truly lambast this work and I can honestly say that I am totally bewildered by this. Thus here I am writing my first review on IMDb in defence of this truly original and exciting slice of British film. I could waffle on now with lengthy comparisons to other films, directors, styles etc. I could dish out my personal opinion on all the tropes, themes and messages held within this masterpiece. Not my thing! I have only this to say if you are wavering whilst trawling through the reviews on here to see whether this is worth 190 minutes of your time then DO NOT HESITATE! Go on treat yourself and "Open up and let the devil in..you know you want to."
