College boy Doc (Tanner Cohen, Were The World Mine) is obsessed with a well-known NYC go-go dancer, nicknamed Go (Matthew Camp). He befriends his hunky crush with the intention of shooting a movie about what it's like to live in his skin. Camera in hand, he follows his subject across the city: into bars, onto rooftops and dance floors and ultimately his bedroom.
But as they grow closer, flirtation blurs the line between subject and filmmaker until a steamy night together solidifies deeper feelings. Cory Kruekeberg's explicit directorial debut explores the thrill and danger of getting exactly what you wished for.

However there are problems: the film is so free it starts to seem more like an idea than a proper film, and the director doesn't quite make the move from the online world to a sense of life as it is lived. There is very little context for Doc's life, and neither character seems to have any friends or relations. It's just about video footage and encounters in Go's flat, a bit of discussion about art, and some kissing in the street. There are quite long passages of pop songs heard over kissing or sex scenes that look nice but don't help to give more substance. The film also has a very experimental feel, using split screen quite often, which I find alienating, but others may like it more. It seems to stop you being at all immersed in what you are seeing, which is generally what I want to feel in a film, especially one about emotions. But even with these reservations I still like the film, particularly Doc's lack of confidence and Go's dancing in his gear in the club.
Anyway he hatches a plan that Machiavelli would have been jolly well proud of. He pretends to be making a documentary about go go dancers and wants Go to be the star. As contrived as that is, it actually worked and so the journey begins. Go is played by the very good looking Mathew Camp who puts in a very good performance. Like all journeys though this one is going to have a few bumps along the way.
The two main characters are virtually the only players here and yet you don't notice as they manage to create such believable on screen chemistry. It also seems to be filmed on a handcam which is intentional. There are a few nods to Andy Warhol here too and some of it is filmed in monochrome. The use of split screens is also prevalent and is often done for visual impact rather than to give two perspectives. The soundtrack is rather good too, featuring Patrick Wolf among many and always seems to fit perfectly with the on screen action - it has an innovative poetic quality to it. There is little in the way of bedroom romping but Go seems to spend most of his time in underwear which is absolutely not an issue as far as I am concerned. So for a thoughtful, different and quite intelligent gay film this one should be the one to `Go' with - sorry terrible pun.
