Overview

Director/cinematographer Doug Liman's third feature links together three edgy stories, all beginning in the same Los Angeles supermarket with an interconnected group of characters. Ronna Sarah Polley is a down-on-her-luck checkout girl who is sweet talked into taking an extra shift from her friend Simon Desmond Askew so he can go to Las Vegas. Ronna is then approached by two good-looking actors, Adam Scott Wolf and Zack Jay Mohr, who want to buy drugs. Ronna, who needs money, plans to act as a go-between between the actors and a dealer friend of Simon's, Todd Timothy Olyphant, until a cop named Burke William Fichtner enters the picture. Meanwhile, Simon is living it up in Vegas; in the course of a very wild night on the town, he manages to bed two women, accidentally steal a car with his good friend Marcus Taye Diggs, and get thrown out of the best strip club in town, with more than a few people after him, especially when he leaves behind a credit card he borrowed from Todd. Once again back at the supermarket, Adam and Zack turn out to not be quite what they seemed, and their relationship with Burke and his wife Irene Jane Krakowski takes an unexpected turn as their evening becomes very, very complicated. Go, Liman's long-awaited follow-up to his indie hit Swingers, received its World Premiere at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival.

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!
