HASH(0x9891fbac) out of 5 stars Life doesn't come with a road map [what happens on a road trip to finding yourself] May 13 2009
By Snow White - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
2007's under the radar independent film The Go-Getter tells the story of a somewhat feeble and mundane Mercer(Lou taylor Pucci) who's decided to take a road trip in order to find his brother and convince him to help spread their deceased mother's ashes. With almost nothing to his name, Mercer steals a car; that is owned by the lovely Kate(Zooey Deschanel) and begins trekking across the U.S., finding loophole after loophole.

Yes, it is similar to the typical plot of an independent film, about a coming of age experience but it is more enjoyable then most, and the acting by the young cast is enjoyable. Not to mention some of the crazy characters we come to meet and quickly find a distaste for.

The cinematography is brilliant, all the scenery was just near flawless; with gorgeous colors and whimsical feelings.

Although the film itself is fantastic, the true star is the soundtrack, mostly by M Ward, it is surreal, calming and the perfect companion to the enjoyable movie.

HASH(0x9891fdf8) out of 5 stars Still not sure what to think about the movie June 4 2009
By Christy - Published on
Format: DVD
First of all, I thought the acting for this movie was pretty good from all the actors, especially Zooey Deschanel. Too bad she wasn't in it more! Mercer decides on a whim to steal a car and track down his older half brother (who he hasn't seen in 15 years or so). He starts his journey the last place he knew his brother was at and keeps getting sent somewhere else. The stolen car's owner continues to call Mercer and they form an emotional relationship through the phone.
By the middle I was wanting a resolution but it kept dragging on. Parts of the movie are just so unbelievable it was hard to watch. if you are a big fan of Deschanel or Malones, I'd say rent it. Otherwise I'd skip this one.

HASH(0x98a90054) out of 5 stars the most beautiful movie i have ever seen Sept. 9 2011
By JDillaTheMonstaKilla - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I never thought i'd be writing one of these reviews, but after watching the Go Getter last night it would be a crime not to tell you how wonderful this film is. This is without a doubt the most beautifully shot film i've ever seen in my life. You can get a feel for it if you watch the trailer, but you have to watch the film to actually experience how the director used colors and lighting in the most incredible way. This is easily my favorite film with Zooey Deschanel in it. (Yes, i liked it more than 500 days of summer, if you could believe that.) And the soundtrack done by M. Ward works perfectly for the film. Its a shame that more people won't be able to watch this film or are listening to the completely bogus negative reviews. If you're a fan of independent films or just enjoy watching an amazing, touching film, you cannot miss this one. Trust me.

HASH(0x98a901f8) out of 5 stars Hollywood in Indy Clothing May 7 2012
By Eric Sanber - Published on
Format: DVD
I want to support indy films. We need someone to balance out the Hollywood behemoth. But I look at this flick and wonder if it isn't just a Hollywood movie posing as an indy movie.

Here's the scoop. Mercer (Lou Taylor Pucci) steals a car to go find his half brother and tell him their mother has died. The car's owner (Zooey Deschanel) is in touch with him via her cell phone, which was left in the car, and they carry on a conversation as he traverses the West, Southwest and Mexico to find brother and deliver the news.

This IS a road movie, replete with odd characters, circumstances, trouble and soul searching. But it just seemed to be stuff I've seen too many times in other movies. The cast, as good as they were, were pretty high powered to inhabit an independent film. Zooey Deschanel, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jena Malone and Bill Duke must have chewed up a sizable portion of the budget. They did appear to use natural sets and a lot of hand held camera so my guess is there was some money saved there. But, again, it all seemed too familiar. Even the soundtrack, with all kinds of indy bands doing insightful-ish songs seemed calculated. Some of the scenes gave me the impression of being odd for odd's sake. You could almost feel the wheels turning in the writer's head.

This isn't a bad watch though I did feel myself getting antsy after a bit. I just got the feeling they were trying too hard to be too indy. It's like a cult movie. You can't set out to make a cult movie. It either turns out to be one or not. The audience decides that for you.

First of all, it's probably only fair to mention that I'm hugely biased when it comes to any film brilliant enough to cast Lou Taylor Pucci. He has the impressive ability to shift like a chameleon, taking on an amazing range of physical characteristics yet never losing sight of the subtle humanity behind each role. I also think Zooey Deschanel is enormously appealing, so seeing this movie became a foregone conclusion the moment I realized it starred both of them together. And it's such an enjoyable, heartfelt, thought-provoking trip. Like any roadtrip movie about self-discovery, this one contains more than its share of brief encounters (some quirky, some meditative) that allow the protagonist to grow. But where many movies of this sort slide into overbaked cliche, this one retains a great deal of heart thanks to the winning, winsome chemistry between its two leads -- which is really saying something, considering they don't even meet face-to-face until multiple miles in. The movie is also quite inventive in its use of framing devices (one sequence shows a succession of women's faces speaking in Deschanel's voice, as the protagonist tries to picture what she might look like). Another plus is that the photography is gorgeous, and the musical score is an evocative counterpoint to many of the scenes. Evan Rachel Wood is on hand to spice up an early leg of the journey, and we meet an amusing assortment of characters throughout -- three of which, interestingly, are played for subtle and not-so-subtle laughs by Nick Offerman. But in the end, I found myself actively rooting for Pucci's character, Mercer, to find a safe and sympathetic soulmate after losing so much. Sweet, touching, spirited and uplifting.
