The animation is imaginatively conceived, but stiffly executed.

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.

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...

This psychedelic trip into the minds of the Beatles is certainly memorable, but you have to wonder what this movie would be like without the awesome collection of Beatles tunes punctuating the soundtrack.

Yellow Submarine is less a movie, in fact, than a series of connected music videos, animated in a dazzling variety of styles.

It's a credit to the art direction by Heinz Edelmann that this feature has retained its entirely distinctive look decades later

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

More than any other musical, animated or otherwise, Yellow Submarine is enhanced by its 11 Beatles ditties rather than justified by it.

If the film's mod trappings seem locked in a specific (and increasingly distant) era, its playful wit remains timeless.
| Original Score: 5/5
