    Though Submarine isn't a dull head-movie, amid the bells and whistles, Roberts seems less its star than its cameraman.

    The main problem with Submarine is that Oliver is not a likable protagonist.

Also Richard Ayoade is brilliant in everything he's done. Most notably 'The IT Crowd' and 'Garth Mergingi's Dark Place'. Please if you haven't seen it an only know the premise don't give it a rating. Your screwing with peoples bread and butter when you do. Full Review »
