    Released 1999
    GO is the 1999 heavily stylized dark comedy now available on Crackle.com and features an all star cast including Jay Mohr, Scott Wolf, and a fresh Katie Holmes while still in her Dawson's Creek years. The style is similar to that of then new and wildly popular "Pulp Fiction" as the film has three separate story lines linked by one common occurrence - in this case, a drug deal gone bad. On an LA Christmas Eve, deadbeat and local 24 hour grocery store Simon asks young and pretty small time drug dealer Ronna to cover his shift while he takes off for a Vegas roadtrip. That night, two under-the-radar and closeted gay soap stars, Adam and Zack, ask Ronna to hook them up with some dope, though unbeknownst to her, the whole thing is a sting set up by narcotics agent Burke to get the pair off drug charges of their own. In vegas, Simon's trip takes a bad turn when he accidentally shoots a known maffioso at a strip club. All the story lines meet and are resolved at a secret rave that ends up much more than the young party seekers can handle. The film was received with mixed critical acclaims and was Doug Liman's answer to his smash indie hit "Swingers"moreless

    Released 1975
    Tommy is a musical from 1975 directed by Ken Russell and based on The Who's 1969 album of the same name. As a young child, Tommy Walker (Barry Winch and later Roger Daltrey) witnesses his mother's boyfriend killing Tommy's lost father (Robert Powell). His mother, Nora Walker (Ann-Margret) worries that the authorities will find out, and she tells Tommy that he didn't see or hear anything and that he cannot tell anyone what happened. This traumatic experience causes Tommy to retreat into his own mind; to the outside world he appears to be deaf, dumb, and blind. Although his mother attempts to cure Tommy by sending him to a religious cult run by The Preacher (Eric Clapton) and The Acid Queen (Tina Turner), a LSD selling prostitute, she mostly ignores his existence. She often leaves him in the care of his abusive Cousin Kevin (Paul Nicholas) and Uncle Ernie (Keith Moon). Retreating from his family life, Tommy finds himself in a junkyard and beings playing a pinball machine. Showing incredible skill, he begins a rise to fame by defeating the local pinball champion (Elton John). When a specialist (Jack Nicholson) tells Nora that Tommy's problems are only psychosomatic, she panics and violently throws Tommy into a mirror, awakening Tommy from his slumber. Tommy begins to share his self-awareness with the world, lecturing and preaching to anyone who will listen. Has Tommy really learned anything throughout his difficult childhood, or is his self-awareness misleading? Tommy is one of the first rock operas to make it's way to the big screen and, unlike The Who's album, the soundtrack to the film version of Tommy is sung by the various actors themselves. The Who's other rock opera, 1973's Quadrophenia, was also adapted into a film in 1979.moreless
