"Go Further", the new film by award-winning documentary filmmaker Ron Mann, explores the idea that the single individual is the key to large-scale transformational change. The film follows actor Woody Harrelson as he takes a small group of friends on a bio-fuelled bus-ride down the Pacific Coast Highway. Their goal? To show the people they encounter that there are viable alternatives to our habitual, environmentally-destructive behaviors. The travellers include a yoga-teacher, a raw food chef, a hemp-activist, a junk-food addict, and a college student who suspends her life to impulsively hop aboard.

And throughout, we see Harrelson test his belief that the transformation ... Written by

I watched this one for 30 minutes trying to figure out if it was a spoof or an honest attempt at some message. It wasn't funny. The message was chaotic. I'm still not sure.
The green message was destroyed by the inane comments from drug addicts, imbeciles, etc.
I really thought Woody was acting out some bizarre green character but no, it seems these were his honest feelings. An attempt at parody really wouldn't enroll the support of sheepish college crowds would it??? What a mess. I suddenly feel like nice steak raised by those evil farmers financed by the evil rich people.
