A good use of sound to sketch a larger picture than what is on screen.

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.
