Submarine: A film for fans of Harold & Maude, Donnie Darko, and Rushmore.

This film, is being referred to as being a being Welsh Weltschmerz .

"Oliver Tate is my kind of hero. He wears a magnificent blue duffle coat. He has a picture of Woody Allen on his bedroom wall. He is weak, cowardly, selfish and a fool. And, thank God, he is human. Oliver’s first love is not a girl with a heart of gold. She is Jordana Bevan, an arsonist, who refuses to hold Oliver’s hand... He also spies on his parents, to see if they’re planning a divorce. To say Oliver is confused is like saying the Titanic had an accident at sea."

I think I love it and I haven't even seen it yet. I'm hoping to go this week.

P.S. Doesn't Oliver look a bit like Harold?


  1. I live Harold & Maude and Rushmore, so I'm intrigued.

  2. YES! he does! Ooh, give us your review once you've seen it! (p.s. I still haven't posted to you yet, I have yet to complete the 2nd bit of it)
