The Next Best Picture Podcast – “The Color Purple (1985)”

For this month’s second throwback podcast review, I am joined by Nadia Dalimonte and Dan Bayer to discuss Todd Haynes’ first collaboration with Academy Award-winner Julianne Moore, “Safe” (1995), also starring Peter Friedman, Xander Berkeley, Susan Norman, Kate McGregor-Stewart & James LeGros. Steeped in ambiguity with many interpretations, the film has inspired a tremendous amount of discussion over the years and has endured as one of the best films of the ’90s despite its modest release, which saw it gain very little awards recognition or box office success. What do we think of it nearly thirty years later as we get ready for Haynes’ latest film with Moore, “May December?” Tune in as we discuss Moore’s performances, the film’s themes, the cinematography, the score, and more in our SPOILER-FILLED review. Thank you, and enjoy!
