A brilliant film
14 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

I'm so glad I got to attend a screening of "Forgetting Dad" a couple nights ago. I'm not one to wax hyperbolic; I really think the film is brilliant.

All the layering, all the unfolding, the carefully orchestrated emotion, the dead-ends, the mystery, and the resolution, such as it was... At several points I thought, Okay, the film will wrap up shortly - only to be pleasurably surprised when yet another unexpected turn is made, and another layer is artfully unpeeled.

The story is told with just the right mix of pathos, humor, punches, vulnerability, and unanswered questions. I love the dead-ends - they are part of what keep the film still very much in my mind, where I continue to chew on it.
