CAT OF THE DAY 008: GO (1999)
Three loosely linked stories featuring drugs, young grocery store clerks behaving badly and William Fichtner acting weird. In Ronna’s Story, Mannie (Nathan Bexton) swallows a couple of pills without really knowing what they are. While he’s tripping, a black cat says to him (via subtitles) “I can hear your thoughts.” Then it says, “Xiang Kai Shek. Famous Chinese ruler. Starts with ‘X’.”
Then it says – and this is the kicker – “You’re going to die.” Which means we spend the rest of Doug Liman’s zippy Goodfellas Lite on tenterhooks, waiting for the cat’s prophecy to come true.
