REVIEW:

Following in the inspirational footsteps of Pulp Fiction, Go tells the same story through three different perspectives, each one with a unique twist told from compelling morally ambiguous characters. The tagline of the film reads, ďLife begins at 3am,Ē with all the stories centering on that time frame. The first story involves Ronna (Polley) who needs cash, fast. To get some, she decides to do a little drug dealing, unfortunately she finds herself in a situation that goes from bad to worse, particularly when a strung out dealer starts looking for her.

The second story follows Ronnaís friend and co worker Simon (Askew) who heads off to Las Vegas for the weekend. He remains unaware of Ronnaís current drug dealing fiasco and becomes embroiled in his own wild story on par with Ronnaís problems. His story provides the most humor throughout picture with a strong supporting cast.

The third and final story involves Adam and Zak, two friends whose plot intertwines with Ronnaís story. However by the end of film every story connects. Adam and Zak are looking to score some drugs and on their journey they too come across their own adventure with a humorous outcome.

Throughout the picture everyone continues to make mistakes left and right. Decisions need to be made but none of them make the right or even smart ones. But thatís the frailty of teen adolescence and screenwriter John August does a nice job conveying this notion through witty dialogue and sharp writing that keeps this film feeling fresh and original.

The film is often compared to Pulp Fiction, usually in a favorable manner. I agree with this comparison and view it more as a compliment rather than the writer and director trying to capture a style Tarantino seems to have a monopoly on. But unlike Pulp Fiction, there is a pace to this film thatís more like an adrenaline rush.

Not only is Go well written, but the visuals are impressive and keep your eyes entertained throughout. Director Doug Linman should be commended for properly using a distinctive style without ever going over board or getting caught up in the look of the film at the cost of the story and characters. The visuals, eccentric characters and engaging story all work well together.

Go is a fun thrill ride with plenty of twist and turns to keep you interested from beginning to end. While some may recognize the dialogue as a Tarantino knock off, I assure you that even though it is, itís much more than that. Even if a film takes its inspiration from other known movies, that doesnít necessarily mean the film is bad or uninspired. It up to the writers and directors to create a film thatís fresh and compelling. Go certainly achieves that mission.
