Cinema Is Art: Submarine (2010)

Sometimes, you need hundreds upon hundreds of words to describe the beauty and quality of a film. Sometimes, you need none at all.

In this new feature, Cinema Is Art, I’m going to be finding some of the best looking films ever produced, and picking just ten frames to represent their stunning visual style. For the first ever Cinema Is Art, I have picked a quirky low budget British comedy that owes a debt to the works of Wes Anderson, Hal Ashby, and the French New Wave. I am of course talking about Richard Ayoade’s sublime directorial debut Submarine.

Creating stunning imagery with a budget of under £2 million, Submarine is a gorgeous look at youth and manhood, and I can’t think of a more enjoyable way to kick off Cinema Is Art.

Here are just ten beautiful frames from Richard Ayoade’s Submarine:
