Despite all of the angry complaints about this "pointless" remake, despite how its distributor pretty much dumped the film into theaters, and despite how badly the new Oldboy did at the box office... it's a pretty good movie!

Children of Sorrow gets off to a bit of a rocky start. Ostensibly we're along for a "found footage" journey with a British woman who joins a freaky cult in order to find out what happened to her ill-fated sister. That thread is virtually dropped in favor of what seems to be a PR video for the plainly nefarious "preacher" Simon Leach.

It sounds like Greg White's sanguine film Separation is a downbeat and miserable affair, but it's actually quite a calm, confident, and gradually engaging thriller about one married couple, their mysterious daughter, and a handful of hidden secrets that feel a bit random at the outset, but quickly congeal into a satisfying little movie.

A Field in England is not a traditional narrative. Those who enjoyed Mr. Wheatley's earlier films -- Down Terrace, Kill List, Sightseers -- will certainly appreciate what the director and his loyal team have concocted here, even if they don't fully "get" it. A movie need not be "deciphered" to be appreciated, and A Field in England is a perfect example of this theory.
