Sure, some of the puns and in-jokes sound a little dated, but any movie that strings together lines from Shakespeare merely as a throwaway comic riff is, in my book, a film for the ages.

An endlessly inventive picture that blends 1960s psychedelia with such diverse styles as pop art and Art Deco to create the fantastical world of Pepperland and its bizarre inhabitants.

June 22, 2012
A unique and often brilliant animated film that pictures the Beatles as towering and often god-like gentlemen who have the power to change worlds...
June 19, 2012
An outrageously inventive piece of eye-popping pop, it still qualifies as one of the greatest animated movies ever made. (It also landed in the number 11 spot on Creative Loafing's own list of The 20 Greatest Rock Films Ever Made.)

Whether it was a case of inspiration or coincidence, most of Yellow Submarine's more creative and graceful visuals are those that complement the songs.

even without the Beatles-endorsed drugs of the time, it's still fascinating to watch

If the film's mod trappings seem locked in a specific (and increasingly distant) era, its playful wit remains timeless.

September 4, 2008
If the result seems less a coherent story than a two-hour pot high, Submarine is still a breakthrough combination of the feature film and art's intimacy with the unconscious.
September 2, 2008
A garish, gorgeous example of pop art at its finest.

September 2, 2008
There's a quiet note of melancholy in much of this material, which is much more persuasive and concrete than the larky, intoxicating pleasure usually claimed for the film.
September 6, 2007
A zesty, satisfying celebration of animation, fantasy, love, and the Beatles that pleases the eyes as much as the ears.

Here are all the ingredients of a novel entertainment.
September 6, 2007
This 1968 Beatles musical gets somewhat plot heavy near the end, but it's a marvel of innocence and free association, blending several animation techniques in a loose narrative full of gentle bad puns and flowing visual segues.
June 24, 2006
There's such a wide disparity of graphic styles from sequence to sequence. Some of them, though, still look terrific.

A movie so joyous (and mildly demented) as to rewrite the rules of what a movie can be.
