Spalding Gray sits behind a desk throughout the entire film and recounts his exploits and chance encounters while playing a minor role in the film 'The Killing Fields'. At the same time, he gives a background to the events occurring in Cambodia at the time the film was set.Written by

So five years of bombing, a diet of bark, bugs, lizards and leaves up in the Cambodian jungles, an education in Paris environs in strict Maoist doctrine with a touch of Rousseau, and other things that we will probably never know about in our lifetimes - including perhaps an invisible cloud of evil that circles the Earth and lands at random in places like Iran, Beirut, Germany, Cambodia, America - set the Khmer Rouge up to commit the worst auto-homeo genocide in modern history

A&E cuts out the part of the sex performer doing tricks with her vagina (including the banana hitting the wall, which Gray alludes to early in the act.) In addition, the scene uses different close-ups, and ends with "boobly oobly." See more »
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.
