Recommendation: Swimming With Sharks (1994)

Back in 1994 I came across this underrated gem of a movie starring Kevin Spacey. I didn’t know much about Kevin Spacey except for his role in The Ref with his brilliant brutal, and honest performance I thought what a perfect role for him to play a boss from hell. You may remember him as the evil boss from Horrible Bosses but you haven’t seen evil till you have seen him antagonize his new assistant in the movie Swimming With Sharks. Hysterical movie along with some thrilling suspense mixed in makes this movie worth the watch and for anyone who has ever worked for someone who was just a jerk, this movie is for you.

When I see that a movie is based on a bestseller or a novel with a lot of buzz, I expect the story is innovative or at least different from the millions of stories that can be adapted. I admit that I was intrigued and curious to see how they were going to pull the story of a pseudo Google HQ called The Circle breaking out their new technology of marble size cameras all over the world for instant real time views to make sure that everyone, especially government officials, are transparent and not hiding everything to make sure that the American people are aware of their countries leaders.
