Field of Schemes 

When: Thu., May 8 2014
If you’ve been meaning to hit up the Cinematheque, but Asian cinema weirdness isn’t your thing, try some British cinema weirdness on for size by catching A Field in England tonight at 8:55 or 7:30 tomorrow night. Described as a “hallucinatory” visual drama, the film focuses on four soldiers who are lured by an apprentice alchemist to scour a meadow for buried treasure. The film-viewing experience is not unlike eating mushrooms while listening to garage rockers try out classical instruments for the first time. Time Out London said that there’s a 10-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’ll have to take their word for it — we didn’t make it quite that far. Still, worth a viewing for the adventurous cinephiles who think that David Lynch is just way too mainstream. As always, tickets are $9. (Allard)
