2007's under the radar independent film The Go-Getter tells the story of a somewhat feeble and mundane Mercer(Lou taylor Pucci) who's decided to take a road trip in order to find his brother and convince him to help spread their deceased mother's ashes. With almost nothing to his name, Mercer steals a car; that is owned by the lovely Kate(Zooey Deschanel) and begins trekking across the U.S., finding loophole after loophole.

Yes, it is similar to the typical plot of an independent film, about a coming of age experience but it is more enjoyable then most, and the acting by the young cast is enjoyable. Not to mention some of the crazy characters we come to meet and quickly find a distaste for.

The cinematography is brilliant, all the scenery was just near flawless; with gorgeous colors and whimsical feelings.

Although the film itself is fantastic, the true star is the soundtrack, mostly by M Ward, it is surreal, calming and the perfect companion to the enjoyable movie.

Synopsis: `The Go Getter' ('07) is an intriguing though at times uneven '07 film about one young man's transition into manhood during a journey across the cultural and geographical landscape of the Pacific coastline. Nineteen year old Mercer (Lou Taylor Pucci) goes "walkabout" (driveabout would probably be a more accurate term) in search of his older, long absent half-brother Arlen. The reason for this trip is to inform Arlen of their Mother's death, his method of transportation a stolen vehicle from the local carwash. As Mercer works his way from place to place tracking his good-for-nothing sibling he begins a relationship with Kate (Zooey Deschanel) the owner of the vehicle via her cell phone left in the car.

Along the way the grieving, inexperienced road warrior interacts with a variety of memorable and not-so-memorable characters along the way; a community of pot smoking, pottery making, self-proclaimed Buddhists, four parolees posing as a band to entertain shut-ins as a part of their community service, a pill popping, sexually active ex-classmate from grammar school (Jena Malone) to name a few. As Mercer's feelings of alienation and loneliness mount the only solace available to him is the disembodied voice on the phone. Will our young wanderer find what he's seeking somewhere on the far horizon, or is it much closer than he could have ever imagined?

Critique: `The Go Getter' is yet another contemporary Indie film that deserves to be seen. In a similar vein of the American novelist, poet and artist Jack Kerouac, director and writer Martin Hynes provides the audience with a slice of life as found in the most unlikely of places. The images and dialogue flow in almost stream of consciousness fashion, hence the phase, "the American River". In my opinion the most enjoyable and poignant sequences deal with the evolving relationship between Mercer and Kate, truly the heart and soul of the tale. Well worth a viewing or two.

First of all, I thought the acting for this movie was pretty good from all the actors, especially Zooey Deschanel. Too bad she wasn't in it more! Mercer decides on a whim to steal a car and track down his older half brother (who he hasn't seen in 15 years or so). He starts his journey the last place he knew his brother was at and keeps getting sent somewhere else. The stolen car's owner continues to call Mercer and they form an emotional relationship through the phone.
By the middle I was wanting a resolution but it kept dragging on. Parts of the movie are just so unbelievable it was hard to watch. if you are a big fan of Deschanel or Malones, I'd say rent it. Otherwise I'd skip this one.

19 year ago Mercer's (Lou Taylor Pucci ) mother passes away and sets out to find his older half-brother he hasn't seen in fourteen years. It turns out to be quite the trip. He steals Kate's (Zooey Deschanel) car and he starts on an oddyssey to find his missing brother.

Things are an adventure. Whereas, most films seem like a travelogue of places, this is a travelogue of people. This is an indie movie of thought and reflection, This film is not a simple road trip, It is special! Do find this film and get it! You will be on a journey you will never forget

I never thought i'd be writing one of these reviews, but after watching the Go Getter last night it would be a crime not to tell you how wonderful this film is. This is without a doubt the most beautifully shot film i've ever seen in my life. You can get a feel for it if you watch the trailer, but you have to watch the film to actually experience how the director used colors and lighting in the most incredible way. This is easily my favorite film with Zooey Deschanel in it. (Yes, i liked it more than 500 days of summer, if you could believe that.) And the soundtrack done by M. Ward works perfectly for the film. Its a shame that more people won't be able to watch this film or are listening to the completely bogus negative reviews. If you're a fan of independent films or just enjoy watching an amazing, touching film, you cannot miss this one. Trust me.
