Film Review
The film is often described as “tragic,” “touching,” “life affirming,” “beautiful” and “hilarious.”
Because of Forrest’s incompetence towards analytical thinking, the romantic drama is narrowed to clichés: Forrest want, Jenny don’t, Jenny leave, Forrest sad.
Forrest naively lacks the capacity to create and develop a complex dramatic atmosphere.
The real drama of the film ultimately turns on a single facet: that you feel bad that he can’t see the ways in which others abuse him
There’s no well thought-out or clever comedy
No likeable characters
Merely an average film; 5/10 at most.
Good production qualities and enjoyable soundtrack
