Edgar's Review of Safe

    Safe

    Safe (1995)

    Unlike Makavejev's female liberation manifesto Montenegro (1981), Haynes makes a strong statement in favor of the less fortunate and most misunderstood. Yet, I feel bold enough to argue that the least thing Safe is, is an ecological commentary against pollution and chemically intolerant people. It's a slowly absorbing feature about an apocalyptic collapse that mankind is pursuing with its current structure. The hous... homemaker is the typical symbol for this. This ain't no Poison (1991) and homosexuality is out of the formula for now, yet it is modern American film direction like it is no longer done.

    97/100
