Frank Perry's screen adaptation of the achingly sad John Cheever short
story gets the tone of Cheever's story just right, even if the movie
itself doesn't have quite the same impact.
There have been countless strong and powerful films made around the
theme of suburban loneliness, and this movie belongs to that genre.
There's something so poignant about the idea that someone can exist in
a world that's manufactured for the sole purpose of providing its
inhabitants with luxury, pleasure and convenience, and still be
miserable. You'd think people would have gotten the point by now, and
figured out that privilege, wealth and materialism have virtually
nothing to do with ultimate happiness, but if our own consumerist
culture is any indication, they haven't.
What helps "The Swimmer" to stand out from other similarly-themed films
is the way the story is told. It's only through the reactions of others
that we begin to sense what's wrong with Burt Lancaster's character. To
us, he looks the picture of middle-aged robustness and health.
Lancaster became a much better actor as he aged, and he gives a
wonderful performance here, as his bravado and macho virility (the
strutting and preening of a man on top of the world) slowly dissolves
into a lost insecurity, until the film's final devastating moments
leave him as forlorn as a baby.
What a sad, sad movie.
