Another ****ed up masterpiece by Ken Russell. Of course, same traits. Story centered around a composer(Strauss), covering a controversial aspect of the composer's life(Anti-antisemitism/flirtation with the Nazis), includes heavy blasphemy(horny nuns replacing the cross with a swastika), extreme violence, sex, and is told in interpretive sequences.

This, of course, isn't as good as his film works, and is of the line of his TV movies. It's not bad, though. It's funny to see his weird humor in play(Strauss's wife, and a nazi soldier biting dual ends of a vienersnitzel during one of the music numbers). Very much a precursor to the amazing weird **** he did later, and possibly the only film I've ever seen entirely in red chroma style.

As much as I loved it, I can. Some rather out-of-place characters and a pretty anticlimactic bit in the middle spring to mind. It was a great film though. The bit at the start where the boy follows through and celebrates having a shit always makes me laugh.

The main actor in this tried chatting up my friends girlfriend in a night club last week. She described him as a strange little boy. I'm still planning on watching the movie mind.

I have to admit I thought Submarine was a bit too teen emo for me. I didn't feel like I could really relate and neither did I think the characters were particularly charming. Overall, I thought it would be funnier and felt a bit bored. The most interesting characters and story in there was about the parents, I felt.

Brilliantly weird film. An unflinching collection of the flagrantly intentionally worst racist stereotypes, crude nudity, violence, and utter irreverence to the viewer's sensitivities. On top of that, a dizzying psychedelic adventure. When I watch a film, I always take in a special regard for creativity, and I really have never seen a film like this.

I hadn't seen this film in about 20 years and I enjoyed it again. It's a B movie but so what?

It's nowhere near on a par with the same film director William Lustig's 'Maniac' (one of the most sleaziest serial killer films out there) but it was an enjoyable 90 mins. Now onto parts 2 and 3

Not great by any means, but entertaining enough. The second is alright too, but I never saw the third one. The guy who plays the maniac cop sure is weird looking
