I just went through several top 40 to top 75 lists, not one of them mentioned go, which I liked a lot.  And only one of about 6 lists mentioned Metropolitan.  

Until your post, I'd never heard of either one of those movies.  Perhaps I'll give them a look.

go is a very good film.  It is Doug Liman's follow-up to Swingers.  And while it never received cult status, I enjoyed it as much.

 

Metropolitan is Whit Stillman's first and best (imo) film.  There are aspects of it that are brilliant in how his bright, upper class, 18 year olds talk to each other.  I saw it for the first time when I was 19 or 20 and couldn't believe someone had actually gotten the cadence and attitudes of speech so right.
