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 ...

Go To Another Doco
9 June 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm all for the promotion of healthy organic living and seeking out sustainable alternatives, however I found this flick to be totally clichéd.

Woody gathers together a band of merry makers including a raw food chef, yoga teacher and a lawyer for activists and embarks on a bike riding/biofuelled bus trip down the coast. None of his team was really introduced properly, or seemed to have anything relevant to say, and I found myself cringing at the "hippie" stereotypes -- sensationalist fear mongering and pot smoking in the back seat of the bus (I mean, I'm no doctor, but occasionally enjoying baked food isn't going to do something horrid to your pancreas, as suggested by the raw food chef - and not all diary contains blood and pus - the USA is one of a few countries that has approved the use of bovine growth hormone)

There are a myriad of intelligent and scientific arguments for switching to an organic lifestyle, none of which were presented in this film, which instead focused on the "vibe" with shots of the gang holding hands, dancing naked on the beach, completing a yogic sun salutation and the odd piece of footage of a clear cut forest or extinct animal.

Included in the party is some random guy that seems to be shocked by the revelation that twinkies are not a health food, and makes pathetic attempts at humour (say no to corn dogs... etc).

If you're after something that has something political to say, is intelligent, well researched AND entertaining - GO TO ANOTHER DOCO.

I suggest The Fog of War, The Corporation or Supersize Me instead :)
