Audience Reviews for Swimming To Cambodia


A fantastic monologue that was unfortunately shortened for this film. Demme can't pick if he wants this to be a performance piece with Gray acting BIG and subtle sets or more realistic depiction with no backgrounds and audience reactions. Still, since it's Spalding Gray, it's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED


This movie kind of speaks for itself. I'll just say it's great and Spalding Gray is completely riveting throughout the whole thing. I miss him.


I enjoy honesty. The perspective of vagabonds, poets and comedians are interesting to me. This is another bit-too-honest, classic. . .in my book.
