Movie Info

Indie stalwart Abel Ferrara helms this quirky comedy about the goings-on at a downtown cabaret. Willem Defoe stars as Ray Ruby, the proprietor of a joint where all of the dancing girls have big dreams of working their way up to bigger and better things. But trouble begins to brew when money suddenly comes between Ray and his two associates, played by Bob Hoskins and Matthew Modine. Asia Argento and Drea de Matteo also star. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

A touching and tender valentine to a lost New York, a city that now exists only as a hallucination.

A highly personal movie, Go Go Tales finds Ferrara in a frenzied yet pensive mode.

A typically lax late-period Ferrara work, far from the glories of King of New York.

Ferrara is in a wonderfully loose and comedic mood.

Amazingly dunderheaded.

An alternately earthy and stylized cross of Robert Altman and Federico Fellini where the freaks trump the tramps as the main attraction.

big-hearted, unabashedly cheesy and larger-than-life

In Ferrera's strip club, the owner sings a sad love song on stage.

June 29, 2008 Full Review

For a film about a strip club, it's surprisingly boring.

Very reminiscent of John Cassavetes' The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, but not as focused.

Probably the most lovingly photographed stripper movie of all time.

February 4, 2008 Full Review Source: SpoutBlog

A self-indulgent fleshfest that's not just about stripping and lap dancing but *is* stripping and lap dancing for nearly its entire 96 minutes, Abel Ferrara's Go Go Tales feels poles apart, so to speak, from an actual movie.

Go Go Tales' sleazy energy, sense of community, black humor and bittersweet nostalgia are infectious.

Welcome to the seedy demimonde of the club Paradise, where Ferrara probes the dreams of lives less ordinary, including his own.

Wacky and good-humored, Go Go has a seductive visual appeal that Ferrara exploits to the fullest.

A shallow but vivid backstage portrait of a strip club as phenom on the verge of extinction, drawing on films by Cassavetes, Altman and Egoyan. Feminist critics will have a field day with Ferrara's male gaze at the gorgeous, stereotypical performers.

May 31, 2007

Good-natured but somewhat half-baked.
