Shot for the 48/5 Detroit Film Project and constrained by its rules FOREWORD does a great job of misdirecting the audience and setting up its twist. The plot is deceptively simple, a famous author with writer’s block and relationship issues receives a postcard from his future self with a warning. Will he heed it? And even if he does, can the future be changed?
Obviously talking about a film like this will spoil its effect, but I can say the plot follows logically as long as you can accept the central premise and I honestly didn’t see the twist until it occurred. FOREWARD is a cool way to spend seven minutes and I hope it turns up somewhere the general public can easily see it.
