Double Take: Go (1999)

Go, the young adult answer to Pulp Fiction.

This week I went with a movie that really resonated with me back then. After watching Pulp Fiction I was fascinated with the idea of having multiple interwoven plotlines mashed up into one movie. This is where you have many characters and stories in one movie but it is shown in different order and all connect in a specific way. Most of the movie also takes place during a 24 hour period. I always say that the best movies take place in one day. I really like putting the pieces together or just seeing the same story being played out from different perspectives. I remember this movie being a lot of fun, different, and also I was just turning 18 so I felt like such an adult finally able to go to the movies without an adult present with me and one that I didn’t have to sneak into to watch. Shhh…don’t tell anyone.

Double Take: D for Disturbing Behavior

So this week I had two choices that I wanted to do. The other choice was Donnie Darko. I love that movie and I don’t see myself changing my mind on one of my favorite movies of all time. I ain’t mad at Disturbing Behavior. This movie, in 1998, released at the right time.

Adding in the horror/thriller element made the film more interesting. Does this movie still hold up to the appeal it had in the late 90’s? I think I will still love it like I did when I watched it 18 yrs ago.
