Forever in Hiatus tackles the theme of isolation and desire to be left out of the public eye. In a busy and crowded city of Ho Chi Minh, Rico, a westerner prefers to live on his own away from his past and public scrutiny. The lack of character background is effective in terms of building mystery around the main character. However, it would have been nice to understand the logic behind choosing this city or how he ended up there. Anyhow, technicality-wise, I find the film's cinematography brilliant in creating a feeling of disconnection and loneliness in a place surrounded by lights and busy streets.
