    Off topic but is 'a field in england' any good? I really liked 'down terrace' but all the others were annoying, so I never bothered with it.

    Down terrace on the 2nd viewing was not as good, but I really liked it when I first saw it on late night telly by accident.

    That doesn't look as pink as vantablack does black, but still pretty pink
    That might be because the black one was developed by a cutting edge team of experts in a uni dept using a state of the art lab over a number of years whereas pink was knocked up in five minutes by some joker in his back room.

    Haha, if you ever want to summon luka you just have to mention Ben Wheatley.

    I quite liked A Field, not sure I've seen any of his other films. I thought it captured the feel of tripping balls quite well.

    Also it's pretty easy to scientifically and objectively define perfect blackness. Perfect pinkness, not so much.

    A quite liked A Field in England, it's definitely a bit of a mess and very studenty though. I'd say that and Down Terrace are his best, Kill List has its moments and I wasn't into Sightseers and High-Rise.
