Overview

Todd Haynes is a fiercely intelligent writer/director who has received massive acclaim. Each of his films breaks stylistic barriers in exhilarating, unexpected ways. With an introduction by Haynes himself, this collection gathers the screenplays to three of his most widely discussed films, including deleted scenes and on-set photographs. Todd Haynes's first short film, Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story, became an underground cult sensation after it was forced out of circulation, hailed by the Onion AV as "the most talked-about, least-seen film of the 80s." Voted Best Film of the 1990s by the 2000 Village Voice Film Critics Poll, Haynes's controversial first feature, Safe, is the disturbing, elusive story of a housewife whose life is shattered by environmental illness. The Oscar-nominated Far from Heaven continues Haynes's investigation of the conflicted woman, lavishly recreating a 1950s melodrama to portray a suburban homemaker who is thrust into a new life. Winner of fifty critics' prizes and on more top-ten lists than any other film of 2002. Far from Heaven has been praised as "nothing short of a masterpiece" (Entertainment Weekly). With exquisite subtlety, these films demonstrate Haynes's concerns as a pioneer of the "new queer cinema" who has established himself as a true visionary of American film.
