A Field in England (2013)
What the hell did I just watch? No, really, I mean it. I just watched A Field in England, and I have no idea what just happened. None.
There was this guy, and he met some other guys, they all went to the pub, ate some mushrooms, but got sidetracked by a rope, then they ate some more mushrooms, tripped out for a while, then everyone died, except that first guy. The End.
Maybe I needed to be on mushrooms, too, to understand what was going on. I really have no idea. At first I thought, OK, we're going to do an artsy exploration of the psyche of men on the battlefield or something. It started a little humorous as well.
Don't get me wrong, some of those visuals were interesting. Some of it was funny.
Then, well, I don't know. I just, I just don't know.
Therefore I'm not even going to give this film a rating. Because I have no fucking idea if I even "got it" or not. I'm sure if I "got it" I might go "Eureka! It's brilliant!" or "That was fucking retarded!" Either way. But I'm not even sure what I just watched.
And that's all I have to say about that.
Watch A Field in England, make up your own mind, leave comments.
I will go back to the disc and check out the extras, see if there's a commentary track maybe that will explain it. I just. I don't even.
