News and Notes
Anyone who gets nauseous walking through a shopping mall or severely depressed while driving on the freeway may find that Safe hits a bit too close to home. A depiction of a woman's "environmental illness," the film functions as both scathing indictment and subtle mood piece, working on a viewer's subconscious like a bad dream. You'll either get it or you won't, but at least give it a try. Safe may be the only horror film with no monster other than the everyday world.
