There's a difference between twisted and convoluted, and I think Jang Hang-jun's Forgotten manages the first without falling into the second's trappings. Over the course of its run time, you have to adjust your interpretation of what's happening several times, but you never get lost. You might grieve for one iteration of the story as it becomes another, but the intrigue sustains your interest. I think the trick, when compared to twists that make audiences groan, is that here they are really pivots. Not a climax shocker, but something that sends you into another half-hour of story (and then it happens again). Avoiding spoilers, we can talk about the atmospheric set-up, as an anxious young man moves house with his family and is soon hearing things bump in the night. Even we, the audience, find a certain oddness that translates as anxiety, an outsider feeling that makes the protagonist question who his family really is, whether they're on his side or not, and whether his whole life is a lie. In fact, does this movie belong in the horror, thriller, or tragedy aisle? Hard to categorize and difficult to predict.
The Koreans are the masters of making movies with a twisted plot.
This one of the most craziest mind blowing movies I ever seen.
Full of surprises and shocks.
And the ending is OH MY GOD!!!
I LOVE IT!!
The ending could be much better. It doesn't make sense living for the truth, then dying for it.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
