3 things about Frank Perry’s THE SWIMMER

The Swimmer [1968]

1. “We’re all gonna die, Shirley. That doesn’t make much sense, does it?”
“Sometimes it does. Sometimes at three o’clock in the morning.
2. Washing his bloody feet in the shower.
3. The rust stains his hands.

It’s funny; I’d already seen this movie before, but this time it really shook me. Maybe because I’m getting older? So haunting and completely unique. I know it was a troubled production behind the scenes, but it’s pretty amazing.
