The Swimming Pool ★★★★

I mean, I should probably mark the "I've watched this film before" box, as I've seen A BIGGER SPLASH. Most interesting change in energy is Alain Delon vs. Matthias Schoenaerts - the latter arguably fits the part better, but the former's smouldering intensity is more consistently watchable, particularly in the end run of the film. Seen some knocks on the direction, but I thought there was lots of nice staging and I liked the minimal use of score and the languid pacing.
