Beautifully shot B&W film that takes place in the English countryside during Britain's civil war. Many strange things happen to a small group of deserters after they cross a large "fairy ring" (and proceed to eat it's mushrooms). The men are then persuaded to hunt for a treasure buried in the titular filed. What ensues may or may not be pure hallucination...

Rated 1/10. If you like shows like Picnic At Hanging Rock or Mulholland Drive, you'll love this movie.

Returning after forwarding multiple times since it wasn't what I expected or had any interest in.

Beautiful, B&W, creepy, weird, arty horror. This is not a popcorn movie, but an awesome movie for people who like to think about movies. If you like films like Under The Skin and Eraserhead, then A field In England might be your cup of tea.

A truly amazing film featuring extraordinary acting and cinematography. Not for everyone's tastes (see some of the comments here) but if you're interested in intellectually challenging entertainment that's WAY off the beaten track, this might be for you.

Just plain awful this movie was a train wreck. To say this movie was bad. It’s an understatement it was torture to watch. In also in other words, it was a dumb movie.

Old_Toto strained to see value here but failed. At least a lot of people an organizations received a pay and tax checks. Thanks to a peer for inspiring old_toto to manipulate a half star. He didn't realize that it could be done until attempting it a couple of times.

There is no way to describe how bad this movie is. If someone has anything good to say about this movie, they're just blowing smoke to make themselves feel hipper than anybody else on the planet. It's pure trash.

Black and white, violent, humorous, and trippy. Deserters from a battle in the English countryside are just trying to get to the alehouse when they get sidelined in the micro or macro world of the titular field by some psychotropic mushrooms, a menacing alchemist, and buried treasure. Oh, and there is the best rendition of Ring Around the Rosie you’re likely to see in a long time, in case you were looking.
