This is my opinion. so don't be surprised if you disagree.
Swimming to Cambodia, is deep, insightful and hillarious.
You are caught up in Gray's fast paced account of his time in Thailand and boston and New York and god only knows how many other places, the whole experience is enhanced by the fabulous play on lighting, music and camerawork. You'll find yourself either leaning forward, swept up in the rythum of his speech, and the depth of both detail and insight. or sagging back in your chair as you catch your breath, or on the brink of tears, or clutching your sides as you laugh.
I gave this film a ten, and i'm not easily impressed.
watch this film with friends or on your own as it's perfect for either. But be sure watch it more than once, as it will never get old.
