United Kingdom | 2013 | Ben Wheatley
The fourth feature by fast-rising filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace, Kill List, Sightseers) is an hallucinatory historical drama set in civil war-torn 17th-century England. It’s a mash-up of Witchfinder General, Winstanley, Monty Python, and David Lynch that tells of four soldiers who are enlisted by an apprentice alchemist/conjurer to scour a meadow for buried treasure. “Breathtakingly lovely and genuinely unsettling…There’s a ten-minute sequence of pure psychedelic freefall and freakout which is one of the most captivating, hypnotic and beautiful things you’ll ever see on a cinema screen..We can’t stress enough how important it is to catch this one on the big screen.” –Time Out London.
