Are you ready to drop a little ecstasy and go dancing? Or maybe you just need to pick up a little extra cash to make the rent. If you want, we can set you up to sell Amway. Whatever you are looking for, you may very well find it on this Movie of the Month Episode, featuring the 1999 Crime/Comedy “Go”.
Sarah Polley, Jay Mohr, Katie Holmes, Timothy Olyphant, Scott Wolf, and more “Go” out for a good time but end up in over their heads in this Tarantino inspired mash up of rave culture and drug sales. First time Lambcast Guest Ashley Ullom championed this film to victory so she got to host the show, a privilege she was surprised to discover would belong to her. Not to worry though, Lisa Leaheey, Howard Casner and Sean Homrig are old hands at these shows and we all had a fine time talking about this film.
As it turns out Sean was a useful guide to the Rave culture and forbidden hallucinogens. We were lucky that he brought a big bottle of water along because dehydration was a real threat. Howard challenges us on the logic of drug dealers, but we don’t go far down that road before we get sidetracked onto some of the other issues we had with the film. Lisa’s highest recommendations for the film center around the soundtrack and accumulated songs used in the film.
Just about everybody agreed that the most entertaining part of the film involves the great William Fichtner and an uncomfortable dinner party. The three part structure results in some clearly irrelevant moments but in the spirit of fun, most of us were willing to ignore those missteps. The film encourages it’s own version of “Six Degrees of Separation” and we discover that Richard and Sean will have a date with destiny and Doug Liman’s “Swingers” at some point in the future.
So just remember, we can touch you, but you can’t touch us, ever. You do and I’ll break your arm.
