Overview

Columbia TriStar has given Go, Doug Liman's electrifying second feature, the full treatment on this excellent special edition DVD. It features an interesting feature-length commentary from director Liman and editor Stephen Mirrione, who discuss many of the technical aspects of filming and tell entertaining stories from the production. Several conversations focus on the chaotic style of filmmaking used, which hearkens back to Liman's days working on independent films. This disc also includes 14 deleted scenes that vary from different versions of existing moments to completely new scenes. They are presented in a poor widescreen format that is incomplete and misses some sound effects and dialogue. Contemporary music fans will enjoy the three music videos by No Doubt, Len, and Phillip Stair with Steppenwolf. A less worthwhile addition is a six-minute featurette encapsulating the basic plot of the story in a dull promotional format. Go offers viewers a choice between full-screen and widescreen formats. The 2.35:1 widescreen anamorphic transfer on this disc has vibrant colors throughout, especially in the Las Vegas scenes. But it contains a surprising level of grain that lessens the clarity level of the movie. The full-frame transfer contains a clear picture, but it suffers from the spatial limitations of pan-and-scan versions. The 5.1-channel Dolby Digital soundtrack blares across the sound field with techno beats and the upbeat rock songs from the soundtrack, adding to the energy of the film. The disc also contains 28 chapter cues and the option of English subtitles.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
With an intertwining three-story structure similar to Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, Doug Liman has crafted a nutty montage of episodes that's as invigorating as the electronica music that fuels the soundtrack. Go hops in and out of a Christmas rave in Los Angeles, each of its characters connected in some way to three supermarket clerks by day, clubgoers by night, who entertain themselves by doing whippets in the stock room and playing celebrity word games. A truly ensemble piece, in which no character has more than 30 minutes of screen time, Go alternates between funny twist-of-fate happenstance and violent, dark humor, all the while remaining essentially lighthearted. One of the first mainstream films to use the drug Ecstasy as a major plot element, the film's stance embodies the contradictory nature of that drug, both glamorizing the experience and providing a disorienting first-person view of the dangerous sensory overload that follows from popping too many pills. The screenplay by John August includes plot twists as fresh as the hip crew of young actors who populate the film. The standouts are Sarah Polley as the fast-thinking Ronna, who double crosses some pretty nasty characters to try to pay her rent, and Jay Mohr and Scott Wolf as a pair of panicked actors who find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Desmond Askew's oblivious Vegas romp is also memorable fun.

    Rave On!

    This is the best fictional film related to the rave scene. It has an intensity that is frenetic at times. If your into trance you must check out Exotic Robotics: Pleasure141x by Atmospherex. This is the scene from the inside the VJ mind!
