The Deep End's most notable visual tool involves the recurrent theme of water, captured by the cinematography of Giles Nuttgens.
September 2, 2001
An undercurrent of suspense flows through this tense, gripping, low-budget neo-noir thriller.

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.
