this trippy / psychedelic / weird / abstract animated rock musical is one of the most enjoyable things i have ever seen. so much fun. "ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! so little time, so much to know!"
It's hard for me to write a fairly critical review of "Yellow Submarine," as I've grown up watching it (I've probably seen it 25 times) since I was young, and I love it to death. The mismatched art styles, the completely arbitrary musical numbers, the irreverent asides and drug-addled loopy dialogue. It just never gets old, and is probably one of the most entertaining animated films of all time.
Yellow Submarine still keeps the spirit of the 60's alive and acknowledging animation as a potential art form. The Beatles' psychedelic world of love and music colliding with the innovative styles of animation. A true classic and the one film that me understand what real music is like, let alone introducing the Fab Four.
