Directed by Frank Perry | 1968

With Burt Lancaster, Janet Landgard, Janice Rule

A classic of middle-age, middle-class, white suburban ennui, this enigmatic cult favorite stars Burt Lancaster (in a bare-it-all performance) as a man thrown into a series of unsettling encounters as he swims his way home through the pools dotting his affluent Connecticut town. “When you talk about The Swimmer will you talk about yourself?” asked the film’s tagline, daring white audiences to see themselves in its vision of existential rot.

Introduction by K Austin Collins, film critic, Vanity Fair
