George Huang
Released:
1995
Rating:
R
Swimming with Sharks is a pitch-black comedy about what it means to have power in Hollywood. The film opens with Guy (Frank Whaley) finally nabbing his dream job as the assistant to powerful film producer, Buddy Ackerman (Kevin Spacey). Though the man he is replacing, Rex (Benicio del Toro) warns Guy about Buddy, Guy is too happy to have the job to care. Quickly, however, he understands the nature of the warning as Buddy takes every chance he can to verbally abuse and humiliate Guy. Things get better for a little while when Guy meets Dawn Lockard (Michelle Forbes), a low-level producer who quickly becomes his girlfriend. His joy is short-lived, though, and Guy is eventually pushed so far by Buddy that he decides to kidnap and torture him. Hoping he will finally be able to exact some measure of revenge on Buddy, Guy is stunned when a bound Buddy turns the tables on him, forcing Guy to figure out exactly what it is he wants to do in Hollywood and what he is willing to do to get it.moreless
