    A highly personal movie, Go Go Tales finds Ferrara in a frenzied yet pensive mode.

    Wacky and good-humored, Go Go has a seductive visual appeal that Ferrara exploits to the fullest.

    A lovely drift of a movie, Go Go Tales commands your attention even as it lulls you along. Conspicuously inspired by John Cassavetes's "Killing of a Chinese Bookie," among other touchstones, it is a sincere and inspired meditation on art and creation, but in a loose, funny key.

    A typically lax late-period Ferrara work, far from the glories of "King of New York."
