Psychosurrealism...
23 August 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

"There are only shadows here," one of the characters says in A FIELD IN ENGLAND. "Shadows" are also ghosts, it should be noted, and one of the four men here seems to return from the dead time and time again. Even the ingestion of possibly poisonous mushrooms doesn't readily explain his reappearance(s). Because these are religious-retarded men (people who believe in God or godS or goddesses), there's a bit of THAT drivel throughout, but it's the very evocative music and the psychedelic visions that give A FIELD IN ENGLAND its true power: it's like David Lynch, via Jim Jarmusch. (For people who liked the recent SOLOMON KANE debacle- a music video that ran much too long-, consider how truly powerful Robert E. Howard's hero would've seemed had he been afforded THIS kind of treatment! It would've taken a filmmaker of Ben Wheatley's caliber to do that character justice.) INNUENDO has never been used so effectively before in a film: the scene where Reece Shearsmith emerges from the tent has to be one of the greatest SUGGESTED scenes ever suggested. (And, potty humor though it may be, I found the squatting scene funny. "Was it a boy or a girl...?")
