A Safe Place is a 1971 film written and directed by Henry Jaglom and starring Jack Nicholson, Tuesday Weld, Orson Welles and Phil Proctor.
The cast includes:
The film was "culled from 50 hours of footage."
Jaglom's directorial debut was a "critical and box-office disaster" Time magazine called the film "pretentious and confusing", a film that "suggests that the rumors of his expertise were greatly exaggerated, or at least that it does not extend to directing." Vincent Canby described the film as a "superficial case history of a suicide" whose "narrative pretends to be a lot more complex"; the film "reveals the director's apparent adoration of his star [Weld], whom he studies in every possible light and color combination, and in every possible camera setup, often orchestrated with fine, corny songs out of the 1940's and 1950's on the order of Charles Trenet's "La Mer" and "Vous Qui Passe Sans Me Voir." Variety said the film's "deliberate experimentation puts a heavy burden upon the viewer"l its "writer-director "has plunged in over his own depth."
