The Swimmer

Burt Lancaster is superb in his finest performance. Four stars - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times Totally engrossing, thanks to its very strangeness, and to the superb performances and vivd location photography. Five stars - Geoff Andrew, Time Out New York Grim, disturbing and sometimes funny...the film has the shape of an open-ended hallucination - Vincent Canby, The New York Times A strange, stylized work, a brilliant and disturbing one - Roger Ebert
