Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Kevin, a charming photographer, meets a multitude of beautiful women through his studio, but can't seem to find one that will help him forget his traumatic past. Failure after failure, his quest soon spirals into madness.

Review

Stunning... Taylor seems to have somehow found places in the city that still retain that feel that was so omnipresent in the films of Scorsese, Lumet, Coppola and others in the 70s. --Fountain Pop

Format: DVD
We’ve been spoiled. No, I’m not talking about plot details; rather, I’m talking about whodunits. Those of us who truly enjoy whodunits have been inundated for decades with some quality yarns that’ve kept us guessing for years. Granted, it’s hard to go back and watch them again as half of the fun is gone precisely because we know how it’ll end, so knowing that ‘the butler did it’ releases us from the requirement to watch closely. Instead, repeat viewings give us the chance to uncover something else, something that eluded us the first time, something that escaped notice or mention. That’s the only joy in watching a great mystery again, and I suspect there might be more than a few who are willing to spend 85 minutes exploring what flew by from their first experience with FORGETTING THE GIRL.

To be fair, they may not discover all that much, but what they will enjoy is a second helping to a great pairing of the film’s central players: Denham and Beamish.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

Kevin Wolfe (played by Christopher Denham) is a big city photographer with no real dreams of making it big so much as he only wants to find something resembling true love. In his quest, he’s committed himself to a single plan: he asks every single girl who sits with him for headshots if she’ll go out on a date with him.

This video is disturbing, while there is a conclusion, it is not closure and there is one significant unanswered question regarding a missing girl and the main characters male friend. Kevin Wolfe lives in and works as a photographer in New York City. He does only tasteful head shots of aspiring actresses/models and he has a difficult time interacting on a personal level with the opposite sex. Early in the movie we learn that there was a traumatic event in his life when he was a boy involving his younger sister.
Wolfe comes across as completely normal and friendly towards women when he is behind the camera, but once that shield is lowered, he becomes flustered and uncertain. He has a female assistant in his studio that dresses rather extravagantly, but that is to cover her very low self-esteem and the loathing she has for herself.
The movie moves back and forth from Kevin speaking to the camera and describing how he is trying to forget the women that modeled for him to him speaking to his grandmother about his deceased mother and sister to his interactions with the women that he has managed to get to agree to go out with him.
Spooky is an understated word to describe how Kevin is when he is on a date with a woman, there is no confidence or resolve in his actions. Even though the women are beautiful and pleasant, his actions cannot help but creep them out, the only one that seems able to stand him for any length of time is his assistant.
When one of the models goes missing, there are hints that Kevin and his male landlord are involved, there is a scene where they are looking at some photos on the landlord's computer but the viewer does not see them. There is a major creepy factor in this scene as the viewer will invariably assume the worst and probably for good reason.

First of all, this is an excellent movie, a journey into madness unfolding before our eyes involving a young photographer who has never recovered from his little sister's drowning death. As a photographer, woman after woman, some very young, pose before his camera, while visions of his sister flash in and out of his memory. I found myself drawn into the excellent acting by all involved, especially Christopher Denham. The movie in itself is not exciting or filled with suspense, but there are some very strange characters that kept me watching. Finally, we are given a shocking truth. Watch how insanity takes over.

He looks like your neighbor, your friend, your friend's kid. He looks sweet and shy. And he just wants to take your picture. He's got an eye for a beautiful girl and how to make them shine in front of the camera. It's innocent enough. He's ust looking to make a living. And what could really go wrong. He has an assistant in the studio at all times. And she secretly loves him. This is sometimes awkward, sometimes hard to watch.

Graphic, tense, and unforgettable. This is a thriller with enough surprises to keep you watching til the end.

Format: DVD
Kevin is a photographer who `does women mostly', he works in his own studio with one assistant - Jamie. He seems to be unlucky in love and so has a thing whereby he asks every one of them out - normally to the movies. Most of them - understandably - say no. He is also haunted by the tragic death of his sister when he was a young boy and can not somehow reconcile that he is not somehow culpable in her death.

He spends time telling us of the ways he has used to `forget' the many women he has been on dates with and at first this was sort of endearing, but as the film develops you will see the veil of innocence slowly slipping to reveal a much more questionable form of amnesia. Oh and Jamie is madly in love with him too.

This has been described a `genre defying' by a few commentators, but it is probably best seen as a film of two or even three parts. The innocence , the questioning and the truth and that is where it becomes much more chilling and gets to the foundation or the whole raison d'être of the movie. It is well acted and Christopher Denham as Kevin is particularly convincing. I think where it falls down is the slow reveal; so as that in the beginning you are not sure what is going on and aside from feeling sorry for Kevin you are left pretty much unengaged and whilst this may have been a necessary build up for the film makers it probably could have been handled better.

Still I found this to be a very good watch, it did take its time though and I think I was non plussed for at least half and then hooked for the last half hour or so - so whilst some detractors may have been harsh they do still have a point - I, however remain pleased to have seen it.

Please note I received a copy fro review purposes.
