A review by Mike Shea Movie Rating: ( * * * * · ) DVD Rating: ( * * * * * )
Quentin Tarantino made the multi-story genre stand out in the public eye. After seeing movies like "The Killing", it is obvious that it wasnt his idea solely. This type of film falls more into a style or genre than an association with one man. I only mention this because it would seem that Go is a ripoff of Pulp Fiction, but only in the style of the film. The movie picks a point in time and builds a woven tale of four groups of characters whos lives intertwine throughout the film. The character set comes right out of the late gen-x crowd with the bumping and booming club scene and the constant search for x. There are some wonderful twists to the plot and some truly original scenes, our x-heads psychic conversation with a cat is a perfect example. The DVD has it all. We get a slew of some very good deleted scenes, a pretty good directors commentary, a 2.35 to 1 16x9 enhanced picture, a pumping 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack, music videos and more. Overall quite a slick piece of work showing the darker side of teenage life in LA. A really good film.
