Go (1999)
Within one 24 hour period, three sets of friends in three dysfuctional situations will collide in the raucous Los Angeles underground party scene. It’s Christmas Eve and Ronna and Claire are supermarket checkout girls desperate to score some quick rent money. It’s a simple plan – all they need to do is acquire 20 hits of ecstasy from Simon and his drug dealing pal Todd and turn around and sell them for a small profit to Adam and Zack, two soap opera stars looking to hit the night club scene in style. But alas, nothing is so simple. Ronna will soon find herself at the center of a police sting, Claire will be taken hostage, Simon will be shot which will make Todd quite upset, and Zack and Adam will find themselves not only in hot water, but at one bizarre Christmas party.

“Go” reads like a very very good sophomore offering by a very very good up-and-coming director. You can almost see a bright future for everyone involved in the film, from the director (Doug Liman) to the screenwriter (John August) to all of the young actors. The script is clearly the winner, with witty dialogue and a convoluted plotline (or plotlines, depending on how you view it) centered around a dozen or so GenX-er Los Angelenos on Christmas Eve. The film slickly moves you from one plotline to the next, as you follow one minor disaster leading to other minor disasters.

The film being a “sophomore offering,” of course, has some drawbacks. Yes, it is tangentially derivative of “Pulp Fiction.” And yes, it does scrounge a bit from this teen flick and that. In some cases, certain plotlines wrap up too neatly, and in other cases the plotlines don’t converge nearly as neatly enough. But what the film may lack in originality it certainly makes up for with style and quirks.

The real discovery in all this is the cast. Sarah Polly stands out (listen to her mild Canadian accent slip through once in a while) as the world-weary checkout gal who’s first and only foray into drug-dealing unleashes a legion of trouble for her. Desmond Askew (wonderfully punny name) is this Pulp Fiction’s Tim Roth, glib and cocky as his well-ordered world whirls and crumbles around him in a neatly choreographed disaster. As the sinister drug supplier, Timothy Olyphant is particularly menacing, exuding equal amounts of danger and innocence, sexiness and insecurity. The characters in “Go” never become cardboard parodies of themselves, and they never dissolve into charicatures of themselves for the sake of plot or atmosphere.

So watch the film, soak in the plot, atmosphere, and the characters. At the risk of sounding glib myself, by all means “Go.”
