Yellow Submarine (1968) is an animated film inspired by the music of the Beatles and particularly the song "Yellow Submarine". The fact that this film is a cartoon gives it a dreamlike aura. The psychedelic LSD-like trip appearance of the film provides an added dimension of a dream type experience. In all, the film is a fun romp that can be enjoyed on many levels which makes it family affair that will amuse adults and tickle the kids.
The main star in this film is the music. Popular Beatles songs are mixed with wonderful orchestral numbers by composer George Martin. The soundtrack is a delight. The animation is fun and visually appealing. The story is nonsensical and imaginative. If you like the music of the Beatles and enjoy animated films then you can't go too wrong spending ninety minutes with Yellow Submarine.
