Does anyone remember "Swimming with Sharks" with Kevin Spacey? It was a really good film and Spacey was great as always. It's a small independent film but you can see it on Bravo every so often. What's interesting about the film is that it seems like there's almost only one piece of music throughout the film. In the opening credits and closing credits. I can't find it anywhere. Can someone please tell me what it is or make an mp3 of it?

I loved it. Nice to see Frank Whaley (Pulp Fiction's Brett) in a lead role.

Here here.  I too loved the film.  Entertaining from start to finish.  And I think Spacey played one of his best characters in that movie......quite unforgettable!  :-D

Absolutely Love this movie. A movie for anyone who has ever had a terrible boss. Spacey, one of my fav's, in a pitch perfect performance, that rivals up there with Lester Burnam and Verbal Kint.
