Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat beguiles is that SUBMARINE is the vainglorious arthouse epic a 15-year-old movie buff would see himself starring in....[A]n arch, affectionate portrait of a teenager's mind-scape." - 04/01/2011 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "Ayoade lets the film move at a gentle pace, while its idiosyncratic charms often brings to mind RUSHMORE, HAROLD AND MAUDE, or perhaps the youthful exploits of Adrian Mole." - 04/01/2011 Uncut


"SUBMARINE -- like RUSHMORE -- is very funny largely because of its protagonist's capacity for self-delusion..." - 04/01/2011 Sight and Sound


3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Richard Ayoade's SUBMARINE is an auspicious, controlled and altogether droll debut film that resembles Wes Anderson's RUSHMORE without being derived from it." - 05/02/2011 Box Office


"What makes SUBMARINE especially successful is that under its clever comedy, genuine emotions are at play." - 06/03/2011 Los Angeles Times


"[W]onderfully funny and subversively affecting....SUBMARINE is one of a kind." - 06/03/2011 Wall Street Journal


"Mr. Ayoade's keen visual wit and clever, knowing touches keep it surprising and nimble, especially in the quick, lurching early scenes, which are startlingly funny." New York Times


"[A] superstylized adaptation of a contemporary coming-of-age novel by Joe Dunthorne." - 06/02/2011 Movieline


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's a self-confident work for the first-time director, Richard Ayoade....Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige are enormously likable in their roles..." - 06/08/2011 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "[Ayoade] blends mirth and malice with deadpan brilliance." - 06/23/2011 Rolling Stone
