When I first wrote on Henry Jaglom's much maligned, and seemingly forgotten, A Safe Place a few years back I hardly had a hope that it would ever find its way to DVD, let alone as a special edition from The Criterion Collection. That is the exciting news though as A Safe Place will be released in November on what looks to be a historic Box-Set from Criterion entitled America Lost and Found: The BBS Story. Jaglom's masterful film starring Tuesday Weld, Jack Nicholson and Orson Welles is featured on the box that also includes special editions of Head, Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, Drive He Said, The Last Picture Show and The King of Marvin Gardens. To call this box-set exciting is an understatement as there isn't one film here that I wouldn't label as a favorite. For all the specs, and they are tremendous, please visit this link. Thanks so much to Criterion for putting out such a remarkable collection. I can't wait for November!
