Todd Haynes

Todd Haynes Todd Haynes’ provocative films subvert narrative structure and resound with transgressive, complex eroticism. His work includes Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story, a psychological docudrama about the life and death of the singer that is satirical yet compassionate; Poison, an exploration of AIDS-era deviancy, alienation and persecution told as a vox-pop documentary, '50s sci-fi horror fantasy and gay love story; and Safe, the story of a San Fernando Valley housewife (Julianne Moore) who is literally allergic to the 20th century, both a brilliant analogy for the AIDS crisis and a coolly devastating portrait of despair and isolation.
