Watching New York City using the fast-forward button.
3 May 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film can be found on "American Film Treasures/Avant Garde Film: Disc 2"--a compilation of mostly forgotten art films of the 20th century. This DVD set is NOT for the casual viewer and sometimes I wonder why I watched the films--as some of them were VERY artsy and weird! "Go! Go! Go!" consists of life in New York through greatly accelerated time-lapse cinematography. The speed is very, very fast and I assume this is to heighten the sense of speed you'll find in a huge metropolis. In many ways, it plays like a travelogue played at 10 times the normal speed. Most of it is a bit hard on the eyes, but I did enjoy seeing the ships racing across New York Harbor. Also, while it made me feel very frantic, the shots downward at the people on the street were quite creative. For a similar effect, take any film and hit the fast-forward button a couple times. As far as rating this film goes, I really can't. It's not at all intended for mass consumption and is a film most wouldn't watch in the first place. Interesting...
