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

A morose look inside the mind of a serial killer

Forgetting the girl is a provocative well paced movie. It delves inside the mind of a man who is extremely mentally ill. Some would call the movie sick & twisted. But, this is a movie that shows light upon dark subject matter that as much as we would like to deny exists, does. For a somber subject such as death, it has a cavalier & carefree tone. It attempted to misdirect viewers by offering three plausible killers. I felt it was clear what type of surprise the audience was in for & it was just a question of when it would happen. Anna Camp & Elizabeth Rice were gorgeous additions to the leading cast. I felt neutral about the leading male, as almost any actor could have played the role, and perhaps elevate the movie's rating.

It is rated AO which I assume stands for adults only, and I agree due to the subject matter. Only mature adults should see some of the scenes because you simply don't want to put some of the imagery inside a mind not fully formed or otherwise impressionable. It is not gruesome or gory and that makes it different from most serial killer movies about the true crime genre. This is a fictional story. If you enjoy getting inside the minds of the mentally ill or psychotic, this movie is for you. If you want a horror movie with blood and gore or a movie with a message or one that entertains it is not.

I rate it 6/10 stars because it was different in tone than others in the genre & it's pace kept my attention. Had Rice & Camp not been cast, I would rate it a 3/10. My feeling at the end is melancholy.
