Critic Reviews for Safelight
A bland and unremarkable tale of sad souls and dead-end circumstances from first-time feature director Tony Aloupis.
To write off "Safelight" as just another generic romantic teen drama about wounded souls who find healing in each other's arms wouldn't do justice to its baffling ineptitude.
First-time filmmaker Tony Aloupis, formerly frontman of the New Jersey rock band Shadows of Dreams, serves up Americana like a stale slice of apple pie.
Everything in writer-director Tony Aloupis' "Safelight" feels telegraphed.
Audience Reviews for Safelight
A formulaic and stereotypical coming-of-age love story, Safelight is quite boring and monotonous. The film follows a gas station clerk who strikes up a friendship with a hooker who offers to help him with a school project by driving him to lighthouses to photograph. The plot is painfully predictable and the characters are extraordinarily cliché: the hooker with a heart of gold, the soulful artist, etc. And the sets are remarkably bland and pedestrian. Incredibly trite, Safelight is a by-the-numbers teen drama that lacks any originality.
