Go Movie Review
Go, a twisted, weird, but original film from director Doug Liman, is a twisted, weird, but original film. The movie stars a variety of young stars, all of whom get their time in the spotlight. Go isn't chronological; it plays like chapters using one character's experience after another, sometimes with overlapping scenes.
Basically, the plot is this: One guy heads off to Las Vegas with some friends and gets in to some trouble there, and in the meantime, back home, one of his friends is forced to get drugs from a drug dealer that the guy usually works through for two gay guys, although the drug dealer ends up believing that the friend is stiffing him so he chases after her, only to watch as she is hit by a car. It goes on from there, and not all of the plot is revealed at once. The first chapter ends when she is hit by a car, and then flashes back to earlier that day to cover a different set of characters. Of course, by the end of the movie, everything has wrapped in together.
The movie is pretty funny in most parts, especially in the scenes dealing with the British guy and the two gay guys. The script is slick and witty and the actors all do a brilliant job to support it. The lack of chronological order helps add to the purposely cluttered film, making it all the more interesting.
Go is a fast and funny film that's definitely worth seeing.
