on May 11 had this to say:

"In The Swimmer you have Burt Lancaster on a quest to swim through all his neighbors' swimming pools to reach his house. In The Ninth Gate Johnny Depp is on a quest to decipher the mystery behind three books supposedly written by Satan. While The Ninth Gate is mildly entertaining, and has a breezy quality, it doesn't really live up to what it appears to be going for. The Swimmer, though, is unusual and suspenseful. A flick that exists somewhere between dark and cheesy, and really isn't like anything else I've seen."
