Storyline

Haunted by a traumatic history, photographer Kevin Wolfe (Christopher Denham) struggles to systematically forget all his bad memories, but erasing his past threatens to consume his future. Kevin is obsessed with finding a girl who can help him forget his unpleasant past. However, all his encounters with the opposite sex inevitably go afoul, creating more awkward experiences than he can cope with. As the rejections mount, Kevin's futile search for happiness and love becomes overwhelmingly turbulent, forcing him to take desperate measures. Shot in a variety of NYC locales, from Hell's Kitchen to Greenpoint, Forgetting the Girl is a gritty vision of the city and its denizens. The tightly-woven drama blends recollections with reality to craft an intense character study of the psychologically-scarred protagonist. As beautiful as it is dark, the tense narrative slowly boils under the surface until it unleashes an unsettling climax that will not be easily forgotten. Written by FTG

I thought this was great
4 July 2016 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I've seen a lot of negative reviews for this movie (as well as positive ones), and I suppose I can see why some people might not like it or find it offensive. After all, it's basically a character study of a serial killer, and in a way it almost asks viewers to be sympathetic towards our protagonist, Kevin Wolfe, who has a serious problem with women.

Going in to the movie I had an idea that Kevin had some issues with females, but what that issue was wasn't clear until at least the halfway mark. Up to that point, we watch what seems on the outside to be a well-meaning albeit awkward man attempt to relate to various women only to be rejected. Something I an most men can relate to at some point in time. It's only later in the film that we start to realize that clearly something is very wrong with Kevin.

Forgetting the Girl is an odd movie because despite the subject matter, it is not at all a horror movie or a thriller, but instead a drama, and almost something of a 'reverse' love story. Don't get me wrong, it's a dark drama for sure, but this isn't your typical game of cat and mouse that you see in movies like Se7en or Along Came A Spider.

The acting and cinematography for this film was beautifully executed. Christopher Denham plays an excellent psychopath, the key being that he seems so perfectly normal, and even nice. Though not for everyone, I really enjoyed this movie, and would highly recommend it if you're into the dark stuff.
