Storyline

"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. We see the hostility these pilgrims encounter, and watch as their ideas are challenged from within and without. We meet an entrepreneur who runs a paper company that does not harm trees; an organic farmer who believes Nature is his partner; a man who teaches environmental activists to use humor as a strategic weapon. And throughout, we see Harrelson test his belief that the transformation ... Written by Vesta, Solomon

Quotes

Woody Harrelson: I sometimes feel like an alien creature for which there is no earthly explanation. In money, we trust we'll find happiness... the prevailing attitude. Like a genetically modified, irradiated Big Mac is somehow symbolic of food. Morality is legislated, prisons overpopulated, religion is incorporated; the profit motive has permeated all activity. Can you imagine clean water, food and air? Living in community with people who care? Do you dare to feel responsible for every dollar you lay down? You ...

It gets the message out ....
23 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

and this is important, especially in the U.S.; where many people are still arguing that "Supersize Me" is anti-capitalism propaganda. Please. Maybe sometimes the message is presented in an extreme fashion, but if this is what it takes to make some people realize that eating McDonald's, drinking Coca-Cola and eating junk food clearly causes medical illness, then I am all for it.

The alternative fuel message is also something people should be able to learn about. Other than the sales of Hybrid cars, I do not see many newspapers covering this subject. Why?.

Harrelson and his group travel from Seattle to Santa Barbara, we view the beautiful sequoias, learn why they are being decimated. While another reviewer mentioned the clichéd, hippie slant to it (we could do without Steve Clark saying "dude" every 20 minutes), this can be bypassed in the name of information. Alternative thinking is a GOOD thing. Once one questions, and changes their diet, they are at least helping themselves and the environment.

Put the clichés aside and learn a few of the issues; I for one find it appalling that the U.S. allows bovine growth hormone in milk, while Canada has banned it, due to links with diabetes and cancer. If you look up statistics from the CDC obese kids in America are on the uprise. The trend will continue unless people face some facts. While some people object to the word "activism" we need people like Harrelson, who have the money and resources, to present alternative ideas to the audience.

Hope he does a sequel to this about fuel and its destruction to the environment, and the reasons Americans are still paying top dollar for oil. 9/10
