A fever dream of the British countryside.
20 March 2019 | by mwilson1976See all my reviews

British film-maker Paul Wright curates a trippy montage of archive clips, Pathe newsreel footage, and what looks like real-life folk horror paganism, to explore the changing relationship the British have with their land. A lot of the folk traditions seen in this non linear movie are still carried out to this day in parts of the British Isles. The hypnotic score is by Adrian Utley of Portishead, and Will Gregory of Goldfrapp and plays alongside folk music from the likes of Anne Briggs.
