If nothing else can be said of The Singing Forest, it is assuredly fearless in defying credibility at every turn and on every level.
Ameer ... is such an inept filmmaker ... that he can't make clear the whereabouts of three characters in one small apartment, much less give them dialogue that isn't absurdly melodramatic.
The sort of movie that makes you question the entire concept of independent film. Hollywood at its worst isn't this ghastly or insulting.
Writer-director Jorge Ameer's bare-bones vanity project has one incredible premise, one that is so ridiculous and over-the-top it would have been difficult to take his film seriously even if the rest of the film's elements were top-notch (they are not).
The Singing Forest is not just incompetently written, directed and performed, it's also breezily offensive.
