Swimming with Sharks

[Spacey is] dazzling…cool, withering, studiously suave, and spurred by impulses that might seem peevish even in a 2-year-old child.

Swimming with Sharks

SWIMMING WITH SHARKS is part of our THROWBACK THURSDAY series in partnership with EAT | SEE | HEAR. Click here for upcoming screenings.
Originally screened at the Telluride Film Festival as The Buddy Factor, Swimming With Sharks is an engrossing picture and a warning to anyone with hopes of breaking into the movie business. When Guy (Frank Whaley), a recent film-school graduate with big ideas, takes a job as assistant to major studio executive Buddy Ackerman (Kevin Spacey), he believes his ship has finally come in; little does he know it's a slave ship. Spacey is unforgettably entertaining as Buddy, who turns out to be a thief, liar and sadist.
