Not to be confused with the much later and totally different Tilda Swinton movie, "Deep End" is a dark dramedy set in late-60s London about the obsession of "Mike", a 15-year-old bath house attendant (John Moulder Brown) with "Susan", his beautiful, sexy, flirtatious and promiscuous coworker (Jane Asher, who was famous at the time for being Paul McCartney's ex-fiancee). For many years, this was a hard-to-find cult classic despite the director Jerzy Skolimowski's past work with Roman Polanski and despite its being one of Jane Asher's better films. Now that it's available, it's definitely worth watching, especially if you like films about 60s London. Just be aware that this is NOT going to be your standard coming-of-age drama where everybody has a few laughs, grows up a little and parts friends. In fact, viewed from a modern perspective it's hard to determine whether Mike is a budding psycho or just a naive, confused young teen thrust into an exploitative adult world for which he is ill prepared. It's hard to imagine a 15-year-old boy taking on an adult responsibility like a full-time job, and the more so when it involves constantly being around women in states of undress (including Susan in her micro-miniskirts) who may or may not want more from him than just a towel. Jane Asher does a great job of humanizing her character, whom the viewer would probably otherwise dislike for being a tease, a cheater, a gold digger and by today's standards, perhaps even a child molester. I suspect "Deep End" went on to influence the film "Quadrophenia" as there are definite similarities between the two films - the bath house and underwater scenes, the teen stuck in a low-level job with a pompous old boss, and of course the obsession with getting the attention of a beautiful, flirty girl who seeks excitement by exercising her powers over men, even though she has a responsible and well-off fiance waiting in the wings.

Jerzy Skolimowski, friend of Roman Polanski, for whom he worked on Polanski's first feature film, "Knife in the Water" and he himself had made great strides as a director previously making the film "Adventures of Gerard" which he seems to disregard its merits. But his next picture 1970's "Deep End" definitely placed him in high regard as a an auteur himself. "Deep End" with its disturbing final minutes, the reason Skolimowski was drawn to help write (along with Jerzy Gruza and Boleslaw Sulik) and direct the picture in the first place, is an otherwise engaging coming-of-age story/comedy about obsessive love starring Jane Asher and John Moulder-Brown. Diana Dors has a brief role that is a bit over-lauded, but Moulder-Brown (who appeared in "Vampire Circus") and especially Jane Asher should receive extraordinary high marks. The film is especially well-photographed and edited with Cat Stevens and the Can providing much of the score. The sad thing here, is that you might be more familiar with the tune by Cat Stevens (as it appears on his "Tea for the Tillerman" album) than you would the film which is finally presented here in a stunning Blu-ray with a Reg. 2 PAL DVD from the BFI with loads of extras that the film truly deserves to have created about it. Also included is a trailer and a very lovely short film starring Jane Asher called "Careless Love" from 1976 by Francine Winham. "Deep End" really shows that Asher was quite an amazing actress giving a BAFTA nominated performance. See it now for an amazing cinematic experience. And remember, this is how truly valuable is what we leave behind.
