A Field in England in the US

A Field in England is finally getting a US release, starting today. It was probably my favorite new film of 2013, and it certainly contained my favorite scene of 2013 (the tent scene—watch at your own risk!).

Drafthouse Films is releasing it in select cities (but not Chicago, boo, hiss). It’s also available for digital download.

I’ve seen this movie maybe four times already, and you better believe I’ll be watching it again. And somewhere I have a mess of notes on it that I keep meaning to type up into something semi-coherent…

      Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes.

      But, yeah, what the fuck..? Duluth but not the Twin Cities?

      Pilgrimage may be required. I feel like it deserves to be seen super huge.

      Would love to see this in theaters. Alas, San Jose isn’t a preferable venue for quality cinema. Sigh…

      I’d join that pilgrimage.

      I’ve watched this film a few times now (thanks wholly to this, and the other post’s suggestions) and too have little to say except, if you haven’t seen it, see it. I think it’ll be a cult classic for a long time. I am trying to hold back gushing but: I gotta mention that Ben Wheatley is the most exciting director for me right now. I’ve seen all of his films since, and not one of them seems like it was made by the same person. Not an easy thing to do as an artist.

      Wheatley and Jump are definitely the two newest filmmakers I’m most excited about. They’re even going to get me to watch Doctor Who

      They are involved in Doctor Who? I dont really want to have to watch that.

      I’ve never seen it, but will watch it, if they make it.

      […] This trippy, druggy Mirkwood sequence is all right OK. At least something novel is happening. That said, it’s no Field in England. […]
