First up: Nathan Larson of the band A Camp.
1. Best Acid-Inspired Movie With Burt Lancaster Set in Connecticut: The Swimmer (1968)
Truly a bizarre piece of film making, this 1968 release is actually a dark hallucinatory horror picture dressed up like a sunny domestic drama. Or something. The mind boggles at the thought of marketing this one.
Essentially, Lancaster plays a well to do businessman who is determined to “swim home” via the pools in the backyards of a well to-do-county in Connecticut. Lots of tripped out stuff happens along the way, Lancaster looks fantastic without a shirt, and the whole thing is incredibly sad and very very disturbing.
Inspired one of the first A-Camp songs, “Sympathy For Ned Merrill.” Classic! (the film , not the song).
