ReviewA surreal psychological horror story—with an excellent soundtrack highlighting the unease the protagonist feels for most of the time we are with him—that gives way to a tragic love story. There are some issues with sweet pool: some ways that the dynamics of the gay relationships are depicted—likely due to the author's own fetishizing of them—perpetuate negative stereotypes, and the story ramps up to its grand ending uncomfortably fast compared to the subdued pace of the beginning and middle of the story. However, those issues have only a minor impact on my enjoyment of sweet pool; overall, it's an engaging and emotionally impactful—both in terms of horror and sadness—story.
