Submarine

Submarine ★★★★

I have a very long and painful relationship with this film which means I still know every word of it by heart. To Oliver Tate, to all the teenage boys who favoured expectation over experience, who preferred to create narratives, fantasies, test the waters, without considering impact, emotion or any kind of afterlife: this one is for you. You are vapid and selfish and mildly sociopathic. You don’t deserve all the intelligence and charm and instinct you have, but at least we’re now so much more distanced from it. Somehow, happy 10th birthday.
