Raw, powerful cinema
15 February 2013 | by (Deutschland) – See all my reviews

It is amazing what can be achieved on a small budget. Director William Wedig has created a film more powerful than most mainstream, Hollywood productions in recent memory. Incredibly gritty tale of a man, recently released from prison, trying to figure out a way to live again. Jailed for shooting his wife during a moment of blind rage, Chuco (Manny Perez) leaves behind his 8 year old son, Machito (David Castro) who unfortunately witnesses the shooting. Irrevocably damaged from the experience, the boy, now a teenager, is living in the street, surviving like an animal. The relationship between father and son is at the heart of this very dark crime drama, and it is handled superbly. Filmed in gloomy Scranton, PA, in the depths of winter, the brilliantly stark cinematography adds to the emotional power of "Forged." This is a complicated film, as director Wedig does not really make it easy to sympathize with Chuco. But we do, because of the multi layered character development. Young actor David Castro is great in this, with his wounded, soulless eyes that reflect the pain and raw anger he is feeling. The conclusion is brutal, and unconventional. "Forged" is not really a mainstream film, and might not appeal to casual moviegoers who are simply looking to be entertained. This is a slow, intense and brooding film that will be appreciated by a specific audience. Someday "Forged" might just become a cult classic. I hope this young director does not give in to Hollywood pressure, and continues to make uncompromising films like this one. And it would be great to see Manny Perez and David Castro on screen again. Wonderful film from a promising filmmaker.
