For a film that doesn't really have much happening in it (action-wise), this baby sure is gripping!

(Tilda Swinton gives) perhaps the best performance from any actor I've seen so far this year.

[Swinton's] is a character with little modulation, despite the many twists and turns of plot in this would-be Hitchcockian thriller.

Una cinta que no es ligera, pero que se disfruta, un drama lleno de conflictos emocionales que trasciende al drama mismo...
| Original Score: 8.5/10

The quiet force of Swinton's performance cannot bridge the ever-increasing disconnect between the film and the audience.

Thanks to two superb performances, you really believe that a lowlife criminal could be the best friend a troubled woman could ever have.

What the movie does have going for it ... is Tilda Swinton's performance.

The Deep End's most notable visual tool involves the recurrent theme of water, captured by the cinematography of Giles Nuttgens.

An undercurrent of suspense flows through this tense, gripping, low-budget neo-noir thriller.

For all its genre trappings, this is an intelligent, probing study of an ordinary woman under extraordinary duress.

Good movies make you want to believe in them, however much work that takes ... The Deep End is that kind of movie.

The Deep End does what too few films even attempt -- it takes an ordinary life and places it in an extraordinary situation just believable enough to be terrifying.
