    In my mind, films from the 1990's almost have their own genre as to what material is explored throughout. Like today's day and age, the 90's had it's own feel. We have a lot of big blockbuster superhero films, and the 90's had a tons of teenage hangout pictures. "GO" puts a spin on that story and has a very Pulp Fiction-esque type of vibe as far as storytelling goes. For many more reasons than one, this is a much easier film to watch than "Pulp Ficton," as the fun element is cranked up to a million. Telling the same story over and over again through different perspectives can be a disaster waiting to happen, and while not every piece of the puzzle fit for me, they did about 90% of the time. "GO" is a very smart film that you do not need to think about very much, and those are two things that I think makes a film brilliant. "GO" is one of the rare films that has definite repeat value for me. Such a lovable little film. Highly recommended!

    <i>"A weekend wasted is never a wasted weekend."</i> Told from three perspectives, a story of a bunch of young Californians trying to get some cash, do and deal some drugs, score money and sex in Las Vegas, and generally experience the rush of life. <center><font size=+2 face="Century Schoolbook"><b><u>REVIEW</u></b></font></center> "Go" tells three separate stories linked together by a drug deal gone wrong. One concerns a first-time dealer hoping to secure rent money, another concerns a group of pals on a road trip to Vegas and the last concerns a gay couple coerced into co-operating with a sting operation. The narrative approach is similar to films like "Pulp Fiction", wherein multiple story lines contain some common element(s) and intersect at times throughout the film. John August's script uses this approach well and manages to tell a story that is clever and unpredictable. The direction by Doug Liman is also well-handled and shows some inventiveness without being overindulgent. Additionally, the soundtrack is skillfully assembled and fits the film's atmosphere perfectly. "Go" features a first rate cast of actors who ease nicely into their roles and slide into that fine balance between seriousness and humor that the screenplay establishes. In a similar way, the film itself glides fluidly between past and present, drawing, again like "Pulp Fiction" a giant narrative circumference around the action. It may take awhile for a viewer to capture the rhythms of the film, but, by sticking with it and following it along on its unorthodox course, that viewer will be handsomely rewarded.

    Pretty impressive for a Pulp Fiction rip-off, with a surprisingly strong cast (though certainly less recognizable at the time) and very energetic direction. All three point-of-view stories are interesting, funny, and well told. The interconnectedness throughout was also pretty well executed, making it a fun (though often stupid) ride.

    Go is a smart and edgy dark comedy that takes the audience on a wildly entertaining ride. Director Doug Liman makes some daring choices, including the use of an experimental narrative, to tell three separate but intersecting stories. And, the cast includes standout performances by Sarah Polley, William Fichtner, and Timothy Olyphant, all of whom brilliantly execute the sarcastic wit and dark humor of the film. Go is a high-energy, fast-paced adventure full of crazy hijinks and hilarious mayhem.
