The Go-Getter 4/5 – A friend recommended this movie to me knowing how much I like films like Harold & Maude and Garden State. I watched it on instant watch without knowing anything about it so I shocked that I knew so many of the actors and actresses (including Nick Offerman, Jena Malone and Zooey Deschannel). The story follows Mercer who’s mother has died. He steals a strangers car to go on a road trip to find his estranged brother and tell him of their mother’s death. He begins to start up a friendship with the woman who’s car he stole when she starts talking to him over the cell phone she left in the car. It has some weird dream sequences, bizarre side-characters, a folk-rock soundtrack and great dialogue. It’s basically an indie film by numbers. I’m a huge fan of lead actor Lou Taylor Pucci and have mostly loved all the films I’ve seen him in (except Southland Tales). If you’re into weird Indie films like Thumbsucker or Charlie Bartlett, you’ll probably enjoy this movie too.
I Also rewatched Young Frankenstein which is a solid 5/5. I wrote a review for that in my blog
