Go Fish is a blithe and funkily stylish celebration of community -- a twentysomething girl-meets-girl comedy whose charm is in its matter-of-fact disregard for what a straight audience might think.
The most significant lesbian film of the past 20 years, this comedy is refreshingly not about coming out--it challenges prevalent stereotypes about lesbians without the stiff and sanctimonious tone of films like Claire of the Moon.
The writers Rose Troche (who directs) and Guinevere Turner (who plays the lead) switch deftly between sexual polemic, comedy of manners and budding romance.
Rose Troche is credited as the film's director, co- writer, co-producer and editor, and it is in the last category that so far she shows most accomplishment.
The film's limited budget prompted some creative editing and filmmaking techniques.
Entertaining and spunky drama about lesbian love.
Go Fish features a largely non-professional cast -- and there are too many scenes where the players' lack of acting ability shows. The result is a labored quality.
Rose Troche does a great job in directing this film. First of all, we see women though a woman's eye. It's unusual, and it focuses on completely different things, than what men usually pay attention to. Here we have an obsession with faces, eyes and hands- not boobs. Very refreshing from that point of view! Also the black & white photography maximizes the effort to capture all those sexually ambiguous women.
The fact that I am only watching this film 15 years after it was made, is a shame. I wish I knew it was out there when I was first questioning myself and my identity. It would have been a tremendous step towards realizing that even freaks of nature (according to the western society's standards) deserve to be happy and can be loved.
Love can be found in the weirdest of places. Ely maybe "U.G.L.Y." but she can make Max happy. Max has to give up on the idea of the ideal girlfriend, and explore more tangible options. I loved it, even though it's totally NOT "L word" and girls are not necessarily attractive and worn out in the gym.
