SUBMARINE has been earning major praise since last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The name of the director, Richard Ayoade (Moss from the IT Crowd), was a bit surprising. Whilst he has directed music videos for Vampire Weekend and television including Garth Marenghi’s Dark Place and Man to Man with Dean Learner, his film debut with Submarine is surprisingly good.
I wanted to do a proper post saying goodbye to 2010 and hello to 2011 but a combination of flu and a hang-over laid me out for a few days and all I could manage was a half-hearted adieu to a year that had been good.
2010 was a pretty good year for film (from what I saw, at least). 2011 looks like it is shaping up to have some interesting releases as well. Here’s what has interested me from the trailers and information on the web.
