A FIELD IN ENGLAND (2013) (dir. Ben Wheatley) (Julian Barratt, Michael Smiley)



Billed as a psychedelic trip into magic and madness, A Field In England follows a group of English Civil War soldiers in the 17th century who are captured by an alchemist and led into a vast mushroom field, where they fall victim to violent and nightmarish forces.

My eldest sister went to school with Julian Barratt. Apparently a very nice bloke.

I think I might be dead before MMXIII comes around. Silly Brits and their made up years.

nice. i expected some color for it being described as a psychedelic trip, but looks like a fun movie nonetheless.

Scorsese put his name to it.

The story takes place during the Civil War in 17th-Century England and follows a small group of deserters fleeing from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by an alchemist (Michael Smiley), who forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.

A FIELD IN ENGLAND will hit theaters and VOD simultaneously on February 7th.

Yeah, they're doing a theatrical/VOD push next month. The Blu-ray comes out in April.

Anybody actually see this?

I saw this last week and thought it was wonderful. It sticks with you. It's brief and beautiful and a solid experience.

It really reminded me of Aguirre, the Wrath of God. It's like the weird love-child of Herzog, Malick and Jodorowsky.

Great score also.
