Forgetting The Girl movie review

Reviewed by Marcey Papandrea, MoreHorror.com

Going into a film with little to no knowledge about it is definitely something I would recommend, being surprised can be such a rare event these days, especially in cinema. Forgetting The Girl surprised me and I knew next to nothing about it aside from the title and one sentence summary. This was a good surprise, but also one that left me reeling as the credits were rolling. This is not a film that reveals all its cards straight away, it is a character study that unwinds and certainly keeps its audience guessing as to what is happening.

Kevin Wolfe (Christopher Denham) is a photographer who takes headshots of models and actresses, he's around women all the time and his experiences aren't generally all that positive. When he was a child he suffered the death of his sister and he struggles to remember what happened that day,

  • ScreenDaily
Ram Releasing has picked up North American rights on the controversial Kim Ki-duk film Moebius from South Korean sales company Finecut.

The genre label of North American distributor Film Movement announced it plans a day-and-date theatrical and VOD release for the film in summer 2014.

Kim Ki-duk’s latest story of a dysfunctional family features an unfaithful husband and a wife who castrates her son in revenge.

The Venice competition film was virtually banned locally when the Korea Media Ratings Board gave it a Restricted rating twice for excessive violence and incestuous sex.

Restricted films in Korea are only allowed to screen in theatres specialising in Restricted film, but none actually exist in the country. The filmmaker cut two-and-half minutes to get the go-ahead with a Teenager Restricted rating.

Released on September 5 in Korea, Moebius took $241,000, according the Korean Film Council.

The film had secured a slew of pre-sales to territories including ex-ussr, Italy and Germany

Review: Genre-Bending 'Forgetting The Girl' Falls Prey To Typical Indie Pop Psychology

The tyranny of genre is the result of movies falling prey to ad blitzes, where modern-day audiences have to be inundated by clear, concise premises in order to be convinced that a movie is worth watching. It seems as if films are being crafted specifically not for the audience, but for the bots at Netflix who have to know what to recommend next to the viewer and for the cable programmers who don’t want to lose ratings when they schedule a repeat of your film after a syndicated airing of “Law & Order” or “Franklin & Bash.” If anything, that’s a reason for applauding a smaller indie like “Forgetting the Girl,” which has no discernible genre, and is never entirely predictable. The picture begins with Kevin (Christopher Denham), a glum photographer who takes us through his collection of failed relationships. He speaks from a place of loneliness, but there’s something off about this well-dressed,

Trailers For All of This Week’s Releases: Punk Rock Vengeance Edition

If you’re seething with unreleased rage and only know three guitar chords, there are a ton of options for you at theaters this week. From the boys finally loving Mandy Lane to Machete continuing his fight against good taste (which must have done something terrible to his family), and from Captain Phillips fighting back against pirates to William Faulkner rising from the grave to strangle James Franco, there are an unhealthy amount of victimized people taking up arms against a sea of bullies. Naturally, vengeful ghosts and an evil Disneyland come into play as well. On the punk rock side, there’s Green Day battling Broadway and a poorly-lip-synced attempt at telling the story of an iconic haunt that never played bluegrass music. There’s also a lot more going on in a week with a massive amount of movies. Here’s your trailer-ized guide to what’s coming out: The Major Stuff Captain Phillips Read

Forgetting the Girl: A Pretty Ok Psychological Thriller

Forgetting the Girl: A Pretty Ok Psychological Thriller
Internet spoiler bullies would silence all specific discussions of pop culture as if a bullet list of plot points could possibly hint at the actual artistry of the finished work. Forgetting the Girl, a pretty Ok psychological thriller, provides a decent case study of spoiler-resistant narrative tone, and the occasional tendency of a director's own approach to spoil his hidden agenda. Christopher Denham, as New York photographer Kevin Wolfe, shrouds creepiness with a boyish, evasive shyness that grounds the character somewhere between Bud Cort and Anthony Perkins. The film's slow narrative burn lingers on Kevin's dating experiences and his inept advances toward the young women, mostly actresses, who hire him to take their headshots. Director Nate Taylor's intention is to...

Exclusive: Director Nate Taylor on Forgetting the Girl

Playing tonight at the SoHo International Film Festival is the slow-burn thriller Forgetting the Girl, an impressive feature debut for director Nate Taylor and writer Peter Moore Smith.

Christopher Denham (Shutter Island) stars as New York City photographer, Kevin Wolfe, who specializes in headshots.  He's haunted by a tragedy from his past and this certainly doesn't help his mental state any when he's rejected by the women he has asked out.  Lindsay Beamish, Elizabeth Rice and Anna Camp also star in the film which has been making the festival rounds for the last few months.

"Peter and I both worked in advertising and he saw some of the stuff I was doing and said that I could do a lot with a little," Taylor tells Shock Till You Drop of the film's genesis.  "He had a cool script we could make for no money.  I saw the script and loved it.
