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

Bad Bad Bad
9 July 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I couldn't bear to watch more than 15 minutes. Pure student film amatuerishness. I don't like Christopher Denham. I don't like his face. It looks like it was made in Canada. Hell's Kitchen Park is shown at the beginning, but the rest of it reeks of Canada, including the performers. There seems to be a lot of very mediocre arty movies being made by the same group of people. These movies get good reviews and they suck. Stake Land (2010), You're Next (2011), We Are What We Are (2013), and a bunch of other stuff like that, made by very untalented people. But these movies are packaged in a way that lures in unsuspecting types who will think what they're about to see is something above-average. I wish I could think of the others. There's a ton of these crappy movies coming out in the last 10 years. Like the Larry Fessenden and Brit Marling movies, only worse. But in that poseurish vein.
