Directed by Rose Troche
Sexy and idiosyncratic, Go Fish is a landmark of lesbian and independent film. Its deceptively simple story, in which single Max (Turner) courts not-so-single Ely (Brodie), is conveyed with freewheeling narrative invention, a gritty black-and-white aesthetic and a keen observation of lesbian mating rituals, humor and politics. Tough and tender by turns, the film illustrated a new ensemble of lesbian feelings on screen; edgy, lusty and ringing with authenticity.
