  3. Between Frames presents Submarine - 'Surrounded by Water'

    This video highlights the use and significance of water in Richard Ayoade's 'Submarine'. Throughout the history of cinema, water has acted as a useful metaphor for many things (e.g. reflection, purity, cleansing, life, drowning in sorrows). We can only assume that writer, director and extreme-cinephile Richard Ayoade has placed the same significance on the use of water within his own film. So what does the water represent in Submarine? Well, that's why this video was created to help you dissect this amazing film even further.

    Michael Clayton is one of my personal favourite films. The directing style and simplicity really attracts me to the film but mostly its the writing, the story, the well crafted narrative that always leaves me blown away by this amazing film.

    This video explores what I feel is the true meaning of this film, not that of a legal thriller but at the heart the journey of a mans redemption.
