International Film Series - A Field in England University of Colorado Boulder, Muenzinger Auditorium
at 07:30 PM
"A FIELD IN ENGLAND spins a single moment in history so that it becomes the centrifuge of all history. It is a ridiculously bold, imaginative movie. Its whirring dynamic is as likely to fling audiences outwards in fright or flight as to have them pinned, thrilled and gravity-defiant, to its fun-fair walls. I nominate it as a cult classic right now, with the 'cult' disposable in the future ..." (Nigel Andrews)
