This Weekend, See Mindbender 'A Field in England' in Theaters, Watch 'Enemy' on DirecTV

A wicked brew of mind-melting psychological thrillers opens this weekend: "Kill List" director Ben Wheatley's B&W feature "A Field in England" and Denis Villeneuve's equally creepy "Enemy." Also in theaters arrive the much-ballyhooed (and delayed) "The Monuments Men," gaining mixed reactions from critics, which many feared after the film edged out of the Oscar race in December. The weekend's surprising treat is "The Lego Movie," which we feared would be yet another bland, been-there-seen-that intellectual property rehash.
