(Julianne Moore, Dominic West, Gary Sinise / PG-13 / 98 mins / Revolution)
Overview: Telly Paretta (Julianne Moore) is undergoing therapy to deal with the loss of her young son. When her therapist claims that Paretta actually never had a son and that she's unconsciously fabricated all her memories, Paretta is aghast; when she meets another patient (Dominic West) with the same situation, however, she begins an investigation, trying to uncover the truth.
Verdict: If you're looking for a movie that lurches from melodrama to psychological thriller, then this is gonna be right up your alley! 'The Forgotten' is, in truth, a pleasantly nonsensical roller-coaster ride for sure, decent but depressing, yet at the same time preposterous and unfortunately banally indifferent to human loss! Despite a plotline that doesn't really hold up to scrutiny, and some repetitive camera flourishes, 'The Forgotten' is, again, passable entertainment. The russet-haired Moore in autumn is like Grace Kelly in summer; a perfectly color-coded vision. Watching her pace through a leaf-strewn park, or stroll a Brooklyn street of dignified brownstones, has its own aesthetic pleasures. And yet, when she does this you feel that the entire picture has jolted sideways to incorporate another direction for us to view - in case we weren't believing the film's first one! Worth a few bucks on a wet afternoon, but not much else.
