The Twin Geeks 180: The Environmental Terror of Todd Haynes’ Safe (1995)

Dear friend Perla sits in with us to discuss Todd Haynes’ Safe. In this striking psychological horror film, Julianne Moore’s character develops environmental sickness and an allergy to the conditions of the 20th Century. We frame the film in the context of movies about the lives of women in society and how hard it is to live in it. As we discuss their working relationship, Julianne Moore becomes something like a muse for Todd Haynes. We explore their work together and the importance of signature films like Carol (2015). All that and so much Baseball, as we do The Twin Sportcast again, to check in on the standing of the Seattle Mariners.
