  The Forgotten (film review)
Director Joseph Ruben establishes an intriguing mystery in his first act concerning a mother who tragically loses her son in a plane crash, only to be told by everybody around her that he never existed outside of the confines of her imagination.
It is rightfully assumed early on that Ruben is concealing a joker up his sleeve, and much of his film's credibility dangles precariously on the logic and resonance of the mystery's unveiling.
The Forgotten is nowhere near this intelligent; it meanders in gradual monotonous movements towards a resolution that doesn't come close to matching its bark with its bite.

  Giuliano Montaldo's forgotten (?) film   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The film is among only a handful that deal with events from the point of view of the fascists fighting for the Republic of Salò in the final months of the war.
Commentators of the film writing at the time of its release argued that the film was of little artistic merit and as such was scarcely worthy of consideration.
The implications of the plight the film's young protagonist, Marco Laudato, who seems to stumble along without ever fully understanding the situation in which he finds himself, and his ultimate abandonment of the fascist cause at such a late hour, has implications for the way in which the Resistance is theorized and perceived.

 Film | Forgotten promise
The first duty of a film critic is to tell the truth, and the second is to try not to gag.
(It never seems to occur to anyone in the film to check fingerprints or dental records or compare birthmarks.) But he knows enough to realise that the days of the good old movie houses are over, that TV is taking over the world.
It is the kind of movie where the leading lady gets the hiccups before she kisses her beau, where the entire town gathers in a diner to get the latest scuttlebutt, where lovers literally gambol through the fields, legs and arms akimbo.

 CER | Sergei Paradzhanov's Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors
His four major films were made under desperately difficult conditions, both financially and politically, yet despite all this, Paradzhanov produced four of the most extraordinary films you are ever likely to see and his place in the pantheon of great film directors seems assured.
His film debut came in 1954 and over the next ten years he made a number of films—the ones he was later to dismiss.
Unsurprisingly, these films were quite firmly in the Socialist Realist style of the time, although those that have seen them (sadly I have not) say that there are clear signs of the powerful visual imagination that would come to the surface in his much more famous films.

 Jack Marino/Marino Film Group, Inc.
Its sole purpose is to produce and distribute film projects that are developed within said company.
This film has been a tremendous experience for both of them, and it has forged a loyalty as well as a close friendship that only true warrior poets can appreciate.
Marino's film also reminds us that when those men are forgotten by a government unwilling to finish what it started, the price they pay doesn't end with the war.

 KDHX Film Review - The Forgotten   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Her husband Jim (Anthony Edwards) and her psychiatrist (Gary Sinese) work mightily to support Telly and bring her back to health because, as is revealed fairly early in the film, they must tell her that all these memories are fabrications.
Telly increasingly loses her grip and causes quite a stir when she tries to convince a neighbor named Ash Correll (Dominic West from the wonderful HBO series The Wire) that he had a daughter named Lauren who also died in the Sky Quest plane crash when their children were on their way to summer camp.
The Forgotten isn’t a great movie, but it is entertaining throughout its 89 minutes during which it wastes no time on useless digressions.

 The Forgotten | Reviews
In The Forgotten, the independent film that kicks off the Three Rivers Film Festival this Friday, two U.S. tanks fire artillery shells into the dark forests of Korea; a man holds his own intestines as he begs a fellow soldier to shoot him; an officer drives a long dirt road in a beautiful classic car.
But The Forgotten is remarkable on two levels: First, in the tradition of super-cheap films likeBreaking Away and ?, The Forgotten gets unprecedented bang for its buck -- literally, as pyrotechnics aren't cheap and are integral to the film's cinematography.
And though independent film is famous for its willingness to take on obscure and controversial topics, Hollywood is nearly as historically forgetful as the rest of America: M*A*S*H and Pork Chop Hill are respected classics, but the former's significance is clearly connected to Vietnam.

 A Forgotten Odyssey
London-based Jagna Wright's film, 'A Forgotten Odyssey', is the story - as told by the survivors - of what happened after the Soviet invasion of Poland on 17 September 1939 under the Nazi-Soviet Friendship Treaty.
The 110,000 citizens and soldiers who had escaped from Soviet Russia went on to be refugees from a pre-war Poland who could never return home to their former homeland, which was left in Soviet Communist hands after the war.
Their Forgotten Odyssey never reached its destination, and they remained a people in exile throughout the world.

 ART FILM 1997 - Forgotten Silver   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Forgotten Silver is a highly entertaining "mockumentary" that documents the life and work of pioneer New Zealand filmmaker, Colin McKenzie.
The film also follows the extraordinary story of how the work of this forgotten genius was brought to light.
Supported by fascinating "archive" footage and stills, not only is Forgotten Silver riveting drama, combining tragedy, comedy and romance, it is also a story that audiences truly wish to believe.

 Journal of Religion & Film: Wake Up! Gnosticism and Buddhism in The Matrix by Frances Flannery-Daily and Rachel Wagner
In the final scene of the film, it is this gnosis that Neo passes on to others in order to free them from the prison of their minds, the matrix.
The film attempts to blend the Theravada ideal of the arhat with the Mahayana ideal of the bodhisattva, presenting the crew as concerned for those still stuck in the matrix and willing to re-enter the matrix to help them, while simultaneously arguing that final realization is an individual process.
The first birth took place in the pre-history of the film, in the life and death of the first enlightened one who was able to control the matrix from within.

 The Forgotten film review
The Forgotten is one of those stories that, in the wrong hands and without such a compelling performance from its star, could easily have ended up as risible nonsense.
Julianne Moore is always wonderfully effectual, but this is the first time she has been given the sole responsibility for carrying a big film.
Teaming up with Ash, the pair go on a quest to determine what became of their children and why everyone from Telly's psychiatrist (Gary Sinise) to the FBI seem to be involved in the conspiracy.
