I'm not a person that is big on comedy, I can't explain exactly why that is, but I'm just not. All the in your face humour that's constantly shoved in our faces these days in intolerable. Thankfully, Go is full of sharp dialogue and natural, subtle humour; my favorite kind. In fact, it does this so well, if I classified this into the comedy genre, it would easily be placed into my top five of all time, possibly my favorite comedy ever. However, I see this film as much more than a comedy. It's directed brilliantly on every level, and the element that stands out the most is the editing.
The film is told from three different perspectives, all revolving around a night rave and drugs, and while the storytelling method has been done several times, the way Liman executes is totally masterful. He makes it so exciting and fresh. Almost every perspective is cut precisely and coherently, whereas I feel other directors would confuse audiences.
The cast is magnificent with top notch people including: Sarah Polley, Katie Holmes, Timothy Olyphant. Jay Mohr, Breckin Meyer and William Fichtner. Everyone has their moment, bringing charisma to the picture and maintaining an energetic feeling. Seek out "Go" What're you waiting for? GO!!!!!
