The Life Submarine with Oliver Tate

It was after I watched this talk by Harvey Weinstein on Jeff Wells' site, in which he made passing reference to the movie “Submarine,” that I saw the trailer for the movie on Curious, I checked it out. It looked good. Although this shot seemed somehow familiar.

Even more so the wallpaper in this shot.

By the time the protagonist walks by the swimming pool in this shot, I was thinking, “OK, that's enough.”

I still hope the movie is good on its own and not simply derivative of Wes Anderson. June 3rd release in the states.

UPDATE: Directed by Richard Ayoade, “Submarine” was released in June 2011, lasted 77 days, had its widest release in 28 theaters, and grossed less than $500k in the U.S. and less than $1 million worldwide. Ayoade directed another movie in 2013 and nothing since. He's acting full-time.
