Documentary filmmaker Ron Mann joined Hollywood actor/hemp activist Woody Harrelson as the thespian traveled up the West Coast preaching the merits of natural, organic living, the result of which is Mann's 2003 film, Go Further. In 2001, Harrelson and a group of friends and other like-minded individuals hopped on bicycles -- accompanied by a psychedelically decorated bus converted to run on hemp-seed oil -- and thus created the SOL (Simple Organic Living) Tour. Along the way, the actor made many stops which ranged from speaking at college campuses to meeting up with 1960s counter-culture… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Go Further may be preaching to the converted, but this easygoing documentary promoting an 'alternative lifestyle' -- living without biotechnologically processed foods -- goes down smoothly."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Go Further meanders -- narratively as well as geographically -- all over the map."
‑ Jorge Morales, Village Voice
"Go further? Nah, go figure..."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"By the time the tour is over, it's hard not to admire Harrelson for embracing easily mocked ideals and suggesting by example that it's better to be part of a small, personal solution than do nothing because the problem is so vast and intimidating."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"[Director Ron Mann] devotes little time to really exploring the issues, leaving the film a patchwork of assertions that, while they may be true, have to be taken on faith."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"A one-sided soapbox for Harrelson's eco-friendly prattle."
‑ Robert Dominguez, New York Daily News
"Without a time machine, this is as close as we'll get to visiting the '60s."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"so riddled with cliches and old information that it's hard to muster much interest"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"This yeasty, yogic, sweetly yappy film could change your life, perhaps starting with the 'butter substitute' on your popcorn."
‑ David Elliott, San Diego Union-Tribune
"It's hard not to get caught up in the energy of this little band."
‑ Marc Mohan, Oregonian
"Go Further will galvanize viewers who, in Mr. Kesey's words, are already 'on the bus,' but for those who have not yet climbed aboard (or who got off long ago), it's an agreeably shaggy portrait of a thriving subculture."
‑ Dana Stevens, New York Times
"Joyful counter-culture activist film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The tour wanders about, rambling from issue to issue like a stoner easily distracted by a bag of cookies."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"Meant to be a romp in the old Ken Kesey tradition, it's more like a dull drive with a bunch of leftover flower children."
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"Woody Harrelson and his gang are entertaining enough, but what % of Americans can be satisfied from organic farms? Hemp fuel?"
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
