Rolling down the countryside
23 March 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Director Paul Wright billed Arcadia as a sensory journey into the beauty and brutality, magic and madness of the changing relationship with land and each other.

I just thought it was a load of archive clips both black and white and in colour put together in a fluid way without much narrative.

That is not to say that some of the clips are without interest but there is not enough to sustain a feature film and including some nudity is not going to reignite the viewer's attention.

The music accompanying the clips gives it both a trippy and eerie feeling and is certainly a plus point.
