Fine acting is stymied by a meandering plot with too many holes.

Riveting, Suspenseful; Tilda is Amazing!
R. Gawlitta | Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA | 12/12/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tilda Swinton has been overlooked for many years; here she's given another opportunity to show her acting chops, and many awards and nominations came her way. I rented this little indie film because of buzz I recalled about her performance, and I'm very happy I did. Without blabbing away too much, she's a mother who finds herself in a situation that she doesn't fully understand, and makes a lot of bad decisions. Things only get worse, and escalate, and...well, Htchcock would've loved a script like this. Hitchcock aside, the writers and directors took a 1947 book, updated it a bit, and the result is a thoroughly satisfying suspense film that surpasses anything Hollywood has done in 30 years. Setting the film in Tahoe is a stroke of genius. Tilda Swinton avoids so many obvious acting cliches, providing a most mesmerizing portrayal of a woman in crisis. So much talk about the lack of great roles for women; Tilda blew 'em all away. There's able support from Goran Visjnik, playing a difficult role, bad guy who's questioning his destiny. The entire cast and crew of "The Deep End" deserves major praise. I can't believe I'm the first person to review this film. Good DVD extras, giving fine insight. Highly recommended."
Not especially credible

"The dead bodies just continue to pile up here, but the cops never seem to catch on. No fingerpints? You'll have to suspend your disbelief to get through this silly genre exercise that revives a short story from the 1940s. It's an updated film noirish tale about a mom's desperate efforts to cover up what she mistakenly thinks is her gay 17-year-old son's involvement in a murder. Some suspense, but it's mostly kind of a laugh. Tilda Swinton is interesting, as usual."
