Buffalo local and prominent film reviewer, Jared Mobarak, gives SUBMIT 8 out of 10, “After the tragic events surrounding Williamsville teen Jamey Rodemeyer’s 2011 suicide helped spark a public outcry against the phenomenon known as cyberbullying, it’s only fitting to see Muta’Ali Muhammad’s Submit the Documentary: The Virtual Reality of Cyberbullying make its second appearance on the festival circuit here in Buffalo, New York. Inspired by Lady Gaga’s music, this openly bisexual young man posted on YouTube, Formspring, and other Social Media sites to share his experiences and work towards preventing the act of which he himself eventually succumbed. As a result of an unending shower of hate speech and anonymous homophobic bullying, Rodemeyer left this world with an electronic adieu through a Tweet to his idol saying, ‘bye mother monster.’ The sad truth is that his isn’t an isolated incident.”
