Excerpt: It's actually kind-a sad that so many people compare "Go" to "Pulp Fiction." Such is life.... Both pictures are great in their own ways. ("Pulp Fiction" is beyond repute -- and I say that just so you know where I stand.) Still -- "Go" is a good time at the movies. Is it epic? No..
Liman provides his hyperactive style on a crime film centring around youngsters and lowlifes rather than adult gangsters, in what is a carefully observed character piece.

Summary: Go is a surprisingly engrossing, surprisingly nifty little multi-stranded crime film running on inspiration from other crime films of the era; a director's own, kinetic style and a central, focused look at a whole range of troubled, often sleazy, young adults in a modern world full of drugs; debt;...
Excerpt: I always feel like I'm bailing out a film from critics who don't understand HD transfers or how each film should be judged on its own film stock and processing. With this said I have watched go on DVD for 10 years now. I think I've seen it hundreds of times.
Summary: One of my favorite films of all time. Hip, like Pulp Fiction, it's just crazy-insane fun. Not for everyone, due to language and drugs, but I really LOVED it! There are also so MANY cameos of great actors we know and love today.
It didn't make too much sense at first, but I loved it when it was finished.

Summary: There are several kinds of movies that I like, but they almost all have one thing in common: they have something special to offer. In this case it is the way the story was brought to the audience. The story is told over and over again, each time from the perspective of a different character.
Summary: I saw this last night and I was going to praise it to the sky straight after seeing it , but it was 2.30 am in the morning , I was tired so I decided to review GO the next day . Now that I`ve had some sleep I`m starting to ask myself why I liked it so much because I can hardly remember a thing about...
Summary: This film has traces of Pulp Fiction embedded in it, but it's got a little "Swingers" and other films to it as well. All in all it's an entertaining movie which ends without epiphany for these characters (like .....). This film has multiple stories but does not try to be alternative and cool.
Summary: Spoilers herein. I'm coming to this film late in the comment stream, which means that critics and commentors have beaten to death the `Pulp Fiction' comparisons. Yes, this has parallel stories, time folding (but not the time shuffling of `Pulp'), black and white shuffling, guns drugs and ironic...
Summary: I liked this movie well enough to watch it twice. I waited 'til it came out on video, but made sure to see it, because it stars Sarah Polley, who I've been a fan of since her "Road to Avonlea" days. This is not a serious movie. It's fun, upbeat, quick, and for those with short attention spans.
Summary: I don't know what really makes this movie so great. It could be the outstanding cast, the pitch perfect editing, the quick and funny dialog or maybe some other feature of a movie one could possibly like. The truth is this movie couldn't been done any better.
