Movie Info

'Go Further,' explores the idea that the single individual is the key to large-scale transformational change. The film follows actor Woody Harrelson as he takes a small group of friends on a bio-fuelled bus-ride down the Pacific Coast Highway. Their goal: To show the people they encounter that there are viable alternatives to our habitual, environmentally destructive behaviors. The travelers include a yoga-teacher, a raw food chef, a hemp-activist, a junk-food addict and a college student, who suspends her life to impulsively hop aboard. We see the hostility these pilgrims encounter and watch as their ideas are challenged from within and without. We meet an entrepreneur who runs a paper company that does not harm trees, an organic farmer who believes Nature is his partner and a man who teaches environmental activists to use humor as a strategic weapon. And throughout, we see Harrelson test his belief that the transformation of our planet begins with the small personal transformations that are within the grasp of each and every one of us, after which, we'll go further.

Critic Reviews for Go Further

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (12)

Go Further may be preaching to the converted, but this easygoing documentary promoting an 'alternative lifestyle' -- living without biotechnologically processed foods -- goes down smoothly.

A one-sided soapbox for Harrelson's eco-friendly prattle.

Go Further will galvanize viewers who, in Mr. Kesey's words, are already 'on the bus,' but for those who have not yet climbed aboard (or who got off long ago), it's an agreeably shaggy portrait of a thriving subculture.

Go Further meanders -- narratively as well as geographically -- all over the map.

Without a time machine, this is as close as we'll get to visiting the '60s.

You want to yell 'Focus!' not at the projectionist in the booth but at the activists on the screen.

Audience Reviews for Go Further

good topic, simple and low budget but it is a documentary with a good message that fills a void. this doc would have been pointless without harrelson and he propels this film to a very watchable level.

Not a bad way to spend an evening...following actor/activist Woody Harrelson in raising awareness of alternative ways of living. Excellent for self diagnosis.

More entertaining than informative, but the likeable characters draw you into the message better than Al Gore can and I was left wanting more and seeking out answers on my own after I watched the film. Like most documentary flics, this one is one-sided, but it's not hard to argue that the side that is portrayed has a lot of merit to it. I haven't seen 11th Hour yet, but I can confidently say that I would rather ride on a hemp bus with Woody than Leo...sadly watching this movie is as close as I'll come to that!
