Storyline

Set in a Tex-Mex border town, Not Forgotten is a classic psychological thriller about Jack and Amaya Bishop, a couple who must come to terms with their tortured pasts in order to save their kidnapped daughter. It is a tale taut with intrigue and steeped in Latino mysticism, where the line between what's real and what's imagined becomes hopelessly blurred. Written by Anonymous

4.7...??? You gotta be frigg'n kidding me. Extremely well done, powerful Thriller.
27 July 2013 | by (Sunny Southern California, USA) – See all my reviews

I've LONG given up trying to understand the people who rate films here; truly it is just WAAAAAAAAY beyond me...

I can honestly find no flaw in this film what so ever. The mood, atmosphere, acting, look, soundtrack, and especially the direction are DEAD on.

I love this kind of film where you really do NOT know everything at the beginning and things are indeed not what they seem. Truly an excellent story and beautifully told. If my life depended on it, I would be at a total loss to find ANYTHING that would make ANYONE not like this movie.

The suspense (really helped by superb direction and editing) was slowly but relentlessly built as the story goes on. And this is certainly just about the best performance I've ever seen from Simon Baker. I really like the twists too; I promise you, you will NOT see them coming. The ONLY thing that you might say is a bit of a stretch is the 'conversion' at the end (that shouldn't give too much away : ) I could see people perhaps having a little trouble buying into the change of attitude. Like I say, I DON'T want to give too much away, but that is really about THE only part that might not set perfectly with some people. But even with that said, it still in NO way diminishes the excellent quality of the film that precedes it.

If you like movies that are very well made and your Thrillers Dark with just a touch of the otherworldly 'tastefully' thrown in, and you like powerful twists that pack a solid punch, then you should very much enjoy this film.

If anyone has even the remotest clue as to WHY the hell these people here are p i$$ing all over this movie, PLEASE by all means let me know the rationale behind it, because I admit that I am TOTALLY mystified...
