Forgotten Movies: SAFE

 

 



Talk about movies that stick with you, this one has haunted me since I saw it in a film class. Is she crazy or is she being poisoned by the world we live in? I don't know. But being safe is a luxury. Great performances and direction from Todd Haynes. Enigmatic movies are difficult to pull off but I think this one succeeded. Julianne Moore picks unusual parts and this one perhaps the most.

I love Julianne Moore in this movie! You're right about Moore choosing difficult and quirky roles. It just shows her confidence in her talent.

She's disturbed, but the "clinic" is moreso...the bitter, dying woman with nowhere else to go haunts me the most among patients/inmates...

I often feel like I am her.

Oh, this is one I haven't seen, Patti. May have to try to find it!

Moore is just perfect for this kind of material - drives me crazy to watch her, but only because she is so good at it!
