Today’s installment of “Movies Worth

Today’s installment of “Movies Worth Watching” takes us to Go!, a new video release directed by Doug Liman (Swingers). Go begins like a hip teen comedy, so much so that I almost gave up on it after a few minutes. After a quick dive into some fairly dark territory, though, I kept up with it. The movie tells a series of overlapping stories told from three different points of view. The stories are presented sequentially, so we see some of the same scenes more than once as the characters converge here and there. The first story ended on a similar note to the first story in Run Lola Run (my favorite film of last year), and when the events began right back at the beginning, I wondered if I was watching an American knock-off. When the cameras focused on a new main character, though, I finally figured out how this movie was structured. I didn’t realize this while I was watching, but the lead actress in Go! also played a main character in Exotica, which I talked about a few days ago.
