A good use of sound to sketch a larger picture than what is on screen.
The hand processed color work gives this a very interesting look.
I found it pretty tedious. I’ve seen similar material handled where it is funnier or more frightening, but here it just felt blah, flippant for it’s own sake. He certainly knows how to shoot and edit a film, but A Field in England is the only one that worked for me overall.
Nice little ethnographic film, but then there is the last bit, that adds to the film, yes, but then doesn’t want to go where that leads. The film is over. Again without all of the information obtained outside of the film there would be big holes here.
Paul Williams can’t save this movie and I can’t believe he humored this guy. It feels like Misery and the film maker isn’t self aware enough to realize it or to really have any understanding of his subject.
The most adorable bunch of homophobes and racists you’re likely to see any time soon. Like Actress these contradictions of character are refreshing.
