For action there's exotic dancers to ogle.

January 14, 2011
An alternately earthy and stylized cross of Robert Altman and Federico Fellini where the freaks trump the tramps as the main attraction.

A touching and tender valentine to a lost New York, a city that now exists only as a hallucination.
| Original Score: 3/5

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

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.

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

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

June 9, 2008
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.

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.

Lessons of Darkness
October 5, 2007
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.
Emanuel Levy
May 31, 2007
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.
| Original Score: C+

Ferrara is in a wonderfully loose and comedic mood.

Amazingly dunderheaded.
