Go For Sisters prefers the roads less traveled - only in a Sayles film would a car chase be interrupted for a stop for gas - and for those that enjoy the scenic route, it's an bumpy yet agreeable ride.
Lady Justice wears a blindfold, but her earthly emissaries have been known to sneak a peak now and then. Go for Sisters portrays these deviations from the straight and narrow and from the unfeeling ideal of justice with a delicate touch.
Go for Sisters is writer/director Sayles' best film in a number of years, and since this icon of the American independent cinema can always be counted on to deliver maverick work, his latest alternative to the mainstream is welcome indeed.
