THE SWIMMER, 1968, Sony Repertory, 94 min, Dir: Frank Perry
Two of the most neglected figures of the New Hollywood generation, director Frank Perry adn screenwriter Eleanor Perry made several razor-sharp dissections of modern morality between 1962 and 1975. Based on John Cheever’s acclaimed novel, THE SWIMMER follows middle-aged Burt Lancaster on a metaphoric journey swimming from backyard pool to backyard pool in his upscale suburban neighborhood, headed toward a “home” that may no longer exist.
