Although there is genuine horror in the way that many of these luminaries were cast into shadow, prematurely and brutally, there remains a certain triumph to be had in Pirozzi's film.
"Forgotten" relies a bit too heavily on static shots of album covers and paintings of some of the "disappeared" performers, but it's still a fervent cry for the power of music.
The film proves much more valuable as a historical allegory than as a musical survey.
Will surely appeal to rock 'n' rollers, but deserves the widest possible audience.
As expressionistic as it is journalistic, Don't Think I've Forgotten triumphs as both an objective record and a poetic lament: It's a film that's every bit as entrancing and haunting as the lost music it celebrates.
The first two-thirds of Don't Think I've Forgotten is a pure and joyous celebration of the music. The last third is an avowal of just how potent rock 'n' roll can be.
Preserves the memory of musicians who paid the ultimate price for making people dance.
What makes all of this poignant, and the reason that you've never heard of any of these musicians, is the events of the 1970s.
Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock and Roll takes a broader look at the country's music culture before the encroachment of the Vietnam War, and the subsequent genocide under Pol Pot.
It's part jukebox infomercial -- it's easy to imagine a TV ad showcasing the guitar rock of Baksei Cham Krong, the go-go bounce of Pen Ran and the velvet vocals of Sinn Sisamouth -- and part terrifying history lesson
A brilliant combination of pop music history and geopolitical analysis. It arrives on VOD platforms (IMovie, Amazon, etc.) on August 4, 2015--not to be missed.
A film not just for the musically obsessed, Don't Think I've Forgotten is a poignant and an important reminder that art matters, especially when one is facing the abyss.
