  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film English Harvest

    The wheel ceaselessly turns... the technical advances of yesterday now the antiquity of today. A straightforward piece: sure handed and well rounded. Probably the type of thing Jennings would have gone on making had events not taken a dark turn and presented the greatest opportunity - that alone affords a layer of wistful additional meaning to the slightly bucolic English pastoral behind this particular tutorial.
