Black-and-white movie from the author's rumors of the worst religious horror 2011 "death List", A Field in England, filmed in the atmosphere of the British esoteric underground and obscure Slavic mind British black humor, about a group of deserters and a couple of practicing alchemists from the fields of the English civil war of the seventeenth century, which are spontaneously sent to find some mystical artifact.

The theme of hallucinogenic trip is present, however, is not being a plot - (what would never claimed other reviewers), some minutes plunged in apneusis horror, as in the best homes — not a bad picture and/or a change of personnel, and suggestions of that her implied, I am talking about the stage a tent.

The story lines are replaced by retrogressively of the black screens in the spirit of Bergman, Rice Sharsmith forbidding wonderful making the face brick jarmuschewski "Dead man", the person shoots the bad guys and sees black star Wormwood, ready to absorb all things like it should be a cool sorcerer.

Duty the hell is wrong with the agate magic mirror (which made me read a whole article about Tibetan stone mirrors, changing the course time) plays a man with a terrible name smiley that is wearing the hat of the Alchemist of the Holy mountain Jodorowsky's. That the most detailed is the devil, who betrays in Whitley person who knows about what he takes he says don't matter through a set of artistic images. And Trier, so if something went not Director or once he just a lot of digging in your own brain shit. Got a good old school, although many things pulling on yourself is Sharsmith. The close to look afraid of the Arthouse genre, with his silence thinner sound.

WHAT is IT? Civil war in England, the XVII-th century. The court astrologer and even a few rogues get in captured the sorcerer and the warlock. With the help of astrologer that expects to find the treasure buried in the field. But their plans destroys stew of mushrooms, which they gathered here under feet. After that already complex picture comes with mind, passing the psychedelic visuals like the early Pink Floyd clips, then in a bloody Western with more than naturalistic mutilation. The ending is unexpected and defies unequivocal interpretation. For example, in the style mushroom new age: rascal-the astrologer Went the way of the Warrior and Became a Real Mage. In General, everyone has to decide for himself what saw the screen what that could mean.

WHY WATCH? Directed by Ben Wheatley is very imaginatively constructed world of the seventeenth century. He there were minimal media, without expensive decorations — only the costumes and makeup. But was more than authentic, almost like to Herman's "Hard to be God". This have enough for in order to see this movie as a master class for directing, on the topic "shooting a historical film on nature three coats and hats, three pairs of boots and one tent." But there are and another layer, purely British. Not in vain the name of the country posed in the title. In this formation, for example, you can find controversy with Peter Greenaway. (Delivered for 30 years to "a Field in England" "the draughtsman's Contract" was the same strange a bold experiment in the field of historical film.) Or the same British ironic refraction in the space of another era psychedelic 60's and "esoteric underground" in the 80s. And of course, the famous absurdist humor. In this film, his more than enough.

WHY NOT SEE? for Example, because you are a connoisseur of simple and clear stories. And "a Field in England" — film a nonlinear storyline and ambiguous interpretation. In addition, charged with violence and unpleasant details. Definitely not worth watching the Anglophiles. And, of course, if you prefer heroes historical films with clean cuffs and white teeth. Although, as we were taught "Monty Python", to distinguish know from a commoner is easier: to less crap sticking to clothes.

Nameless battle of the English civil war Ben Wheatley more than a convenient stage space. It "a Field in England" is stretched on the soil dark European folklore, however, Wheatley put his heroes in modern times, would only the surroundings. Black the parable of the three deserters who had fled for his own cowardice for the sweetness of the ale, and met the devil himself, as if devoid of spatiality. A wide field in suddenly becomes completely dimensionless, its visible boundaries are lost in a murky haze. Mushroom soup, linking the fugitives with a cursed place, not creates a frenzy, she it only increases. Compiling your movie of the many images of dark, Whitley is well aware of what story he wants to tell. "Field in England" — this is the Apocalypse in miniature, an example of the demoralization and decay of a single group of people, each of which came to field descended. They brought back the greed, cowardice and gluttony, and met the cruelty, madness and filth. In pitch God, there is ruled by another force, the ruthless and cynical. This piece of land, surrounded by forest, akin to danilovoy pit — a test of his faith for strength. At all its macabre essence, the film does not enters contradict Christianity, on the contrary, it is faith in the Almighty becomes for one of heroes of the incentive to rescue themselves and new friends.

Leisurely, sometimes slowing almost not to the state of the frozen frame, the film Wheatley like a medieval engraving, frightening and fascinating at the same time. In deprived of natural colours on the scenery occur at first glance unnatural things. Feces, dirt under the nails, chipped and swollen from diseases of the penis — repulsive and disgusting, people the Director puts in contrast the beauty of nature. But the visible is deceptive: a picturesque scene will soon seem infernal, and through the outer ugliness, in the Trinity of deserters all clearly visible pious impulses. The devil, or just a bastard to try on his role the laws of the genre is clothed with the nines. In this person does not find a bit of light — absolute evil, subordinating the will of the weak in spirit. But Wheatley limited to your creation charismatic characters, and panoramic plans. He lulls the viewer while the camera crawling on the grass, long lingers on faces, snatches of static scenes. And makes it only to blow up the consciousness of the intractable analysis of the mushroom trip or fill the frame-black tar planet, the apocalyptic star, with great speed rushing for earth threatening to devour all things. Movie Wheatley is able to shock and delight at the same time as the visuals, so and displayed in it events. Pass through the field, cope with all the horrors, so to be cleansed from sin, to stay the same it gutters — to handle inner devil and forever to disappear.
