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.

Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awkward characters acting in improbable ways... March 24, 2014
Format:DVD
...lead to an unsatisfying conclusion.

"Forgetting the Girl" is a genre-confused, muddled mess of a movie that quickly will make you lose interest in the fate of any of its main characters as it tries to decide what it wants to be. In the end, it can't make up its own mind about whether it's a psycho-sexual thriller, a whodunit, or a piece of noir about urban alienation (and lets not even talk about the dalliances into romcom as Kevin kvetches in front of his dates about the latest stupid thing he's just said). In the end, it executes none of these in an elegant way, and led me to total indifference about what happens to any of its main characters.

The movie centers on the life of Kevin Wolfe, a 30-something New York City studio photographer. He specializes in head shots for aspiring models and actresses ("$300 for the digital package; prints extra..."). His M.O. is to ask each of his subjects out sometime during their photo sessions. Then, when he is either rejected immediately --or after an awkward date or two-- he engages in some sublimating activity to help him forget about them (a trip to the MOMA; a gym membership, a shopping spree...you get the picture). Orbiting Kevin's creepy little world are his assistant Jamie, all goth and black (and in recovery, full of self-loathing and secretly crazy about Kevin...really crazy...as in stalking him on dates crazy) and his landlord, Tanner. Tanner seems to do nothing other than collect rent from Kevin and share his latest discoveries in porn. Lingering in the background are Kevin's grandmother (Ruby) and Jamie's gay 12-step sponsor, Derek.
