Wheatfield with mushrooms
6 July 2013 | by PipAndSqueakSee all my reviews

Name of Director: WHEATley, real name of central actor: SHEARSmith, real name of actor playing evil character: SMILEY. Geddit!!! Oh so droll, this film is so up its own backside you really do have to wonder how this self-indulgent 'trip' got so much publicity. After all, it only took 12 days to produce and pence to fund. Shearsmith is such an expert at playing grotesque and left-field characters though that it is through him that you begin to understand what is going on here. In fact, his performance is a dream. (Geddit - oh, do keep up folks). This is in fact a clever bit of filmography and I was tempted to make a Peter Greenaway comparison - except, that's wrong too. This is definitely not for everyone but that's not to say its without merit. A strange merit is has indeed.
