Critics reviews

Far from being any sort of bitch goddess, [Swinton is] a powerhouse of controlled energy; essentially, she belongs in another movie, and it’s mainly this other movie that makes The Deep End worth seeing. For everything else, you’re better off tracking down the original — not an easy matter, alas, because, like so many other gems in Hollywood auteurist cinema, it isn’t on video.
