Product Description

Get on the bio-fueled bus with actor and activist Woody Harrelson and his band of "Merry Hempsters" as they embark on a 1,300-mile road trip from Seattle to Santa Barbara to promote environmental awareness and "Simple Organic Living." Pop and counter-culture documentarian Ron Mann (Grass, Comic Book Confidential, Twist) chronicles every leg of Harrelson’s journey, from college campus appearances and encounters with curious onlookers, to a visit with 1960s icon Ken Kesey. With his fellow travelers, including one confessed junk food addict, Harrelson is determined to change hearts and minds, one hemp burger and sweet avocado chocolate mousse pie at a time. Featuring the music of Natalie Merchant, Bob Weir, Anthony Kiedis and Dave Matthews. "It’s all good, dude."

Amazon.com

In Natural Born Killers, Woody Harrelson played a mass murderer on a road trip killing spree. In Go Further, Harrelson has returned to the road, this time as himself, and this time he’s out to save the earth. The film documents a trip down the Pacific coast Harrelson and assorted friends took in the summer of 2001 in a bio-diesel and hemp oil-fueled bus. Along the way they tackled various stretches by bike, did a lot of yoga, spoke in front of college crowds about environmental awareness, ate avocado-based delicacies prepared by the on-board raw foods chef, and encountered rock stars like Bob Weir, Natalie Merchant, and Anthony Kiedis. Your run of the mill road trip, in other words. Harrelson’s buddy, the junk food addict Steve Clark emerges as the star, if stardom means the ability to expound on the evils of non-organic milk at length. Herein lies the conundrum. For all its earnestness, or maybe because of it, Go Further drags. It’s a movie with its heart in the right place, but that seems unwilling to preach to anyone outside the choir. The best bits are those in which Harrelson and the crew encounter folks who don't share their point of view--inhalant-addicted teens in Oregon, small town folks who sneeringly refer to Harrelson as "Woody Allen." Opportunities for confrontation are eschewed lest anyone's vibe gets harshed. One almost wishes Michael Moore had been hitchhiking along US Route 1 that summer. --Ryan Boudinot

5.0 out of 5 stars Motivating June 30, 2005
Format:DVD
For a fat carnivore like myself, I found this exremely motivating. It isn't preachy. It isn't super political. It's just some basic truths and ideas presented. I've always been pretty ignorant about environmental things and didn't have the will power to want to change my eating habits. I loved the way this was presented. The musical presentations were great too. You should check out the website if the movie did anything for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Understand other Reviews August 22, 2005
Format:DVD
After reading reviews on Amazon about this movie I was prepared to be disappointed. This is hands down the best movie I have seen that tries to put an entire organic way of living into a holistic framework. I have been disappointed in the past where people implement sustainable living in one area of their life but not others. For example I see raw foodists travel all over using fossil fuels and live in large houses. Also there are many good one issue movies such as the movie Blue Vinyl which I loved but the director was overweight and I don't know if she got the rest of the sustainable picture with regard to eating right, being close to nature, and using Yoga and meditation. There are many single issue movies and books out there looking at Biodiesel, sustainable agriculture, raw foods,green building and Yoga, but there is not one that puts them all together as well as this film.

What I really love about this movie is that it is upbeat, positive, and the poem at the end by Woody is worth the price alone. Also, don't miss the extras where there is a speech by Julia Hill Butterfly that is awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic June 25, 2008
By C
Format:DVD
This is a fantastic and inspiring movie. The people in it are relateable, the music is great, and the message is timeless. It is funny, but not cheesy, the message is vocalized but not preachy. Ron Mann is a great director who made a motivating and inspirational movie. And in response to one reviewer calling it a spoof, it is not. I am a member of the Ruckus Society and they are a %100 legitimate organization with real activist training camps. In short, everyone needs to see Go Further.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Unsung Heros August 3, 2007
By Akasha
Format:DVD
This movie is for the every day Joe and Josie who are more concerned with putting food on the table for their families, rather than if it was microbiotic. Its not a get on your soap box movie, its a "this is a journey we took with like-minded folk telling our personal truths". They offered up the menu with ease and grace.

The real heros of the journey were not the attendees, but rather those folks they met along their journey at the side of the road. There were the individual farms, whether it be food or worm farms doing their thing in the manner that made their hearts sing. Yes, they had stereotypical teen drug users they met up with for a few moments and a lot too much of a two-faced sexiest named steve, small "s" intended.

The movie is worth your time and the message is worth all of our efforts. This coach potato might just get up early and go to the Saturday Farmer's Market in Eugene tomorrow.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Start October 10, 2009
By michael
Format:DVD
This documentary of Woody's road trip is a good introduction to the many environmental problems we face. I hope it encouraged people to investigate further.
It's unfortunate the movie spent so much time documenting Steve's transformation. Steve went from a junk food eating douche to an organic, raw food eating douche.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed May 18, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Woody Harrelson. I saw the movie "Ethos" and have read about him in Veg times mag. I love his message on animal rights and environmentalism. I though this movie would give personal insights into what precipitated his vegan lifestyle and how it has changed him etc. I was really disappointed. This movie is basically watching a group of people ride a bus. When they would get to a place where he was going to speak they would stop tape as soon as Woodey got on stage and bring you back to the bus. If I hadn't already heard him speak on the internet I would only have a vague idea what his passions were by the movie alone. I bought the book as well so maybe that will be more of what I was looking for.
