Submarine

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Everybody comes of age some time or another, and if you haven't learned that from personal experience yet, movies will take the burden off of you, because every director makes a coming-of-age film at some time or another, too. On the one hand, that much focus on a particular point of life means a lot of it is going to be mediocre if not out and out bad.

  • Summary: Some of the best films are the ones that you like for no describable reason. Submarine isn’t one of the best films that I’ve seen, but it’s an enjoyable and humourous flick that doesn’t disappoint.

  • Summary: Submarine tends to be the overly precious and needlessly quirky cinema that arthouse hipsters eat up with a spoon.

Submarine (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: If you like eccentric and quirky British style humor, you will love Submarine . Personally I found the whole thing a bit over-precious and self aware. I will admit it is a refreshing version of a teen comedy, and Oliver’s observations held true to the teen experience. I think this is a fine debut for Richard Ayoade and look forward to his next movie.

  • Conclusion: 'Submarine' is an eccentric comedy/drama about one odd young man's coming of age. With its dry sense of humor and heartfelt observations, the film overcomes a slightly familiar style and finds its own voice. The video transfer is very nice but the audio leaves a bit to be desired. Unfortunately, supplements are sparse. While this isn't the strongest disc, it's certainly worth a look.

Submarine Review

  • Excerpt: Oliver Tate (Craig Roberts) isn’t good at much beyond routine searches of his parents bedroom, Oliver neurotic in his actions during his woeful transition into adulthood. He may have found the only girl loopy enough to be with him, his parents are static, crumbling drones, and his new neighbor is a self-help guru obsessed with color. They’re all a little crazy.

  • Excerpt: The precocious lead in Submarine , adapted by actor-writer-director Richard Ayoade from Joe Dunthorne’s 2008 coming-of-age novel, sees the high-wire drama and dark comedy of his adolescence in largely cinematic terms. As played by Craig Roberts, his Technicolor imagination transforms the dingy raw material of his tumultuous teen years into dazzling French New Wave fantasies in which he plays the romantic hero.

Submarine (2010)

  • Conclusion: One of the executive producers of Submarine was Ben Stiller, who makes a cameo as the star of an American soap opera that appears briefly on a TV screen. One can understand Stiller's interest in the material, because Submarine explores the same areas of emotional discomfort that have inspired much of Stiller's best work.

  • Conclusion: A perfect blend of cool, quirky comedy and warm-hearted drama, crafted with such poise that it should see the transcendence of Ayoade from TV nerd-comic to true big-screen talent.
