A lovely drift of a movie, “Go Go Tales” commands your attention even as it lulls you along. Conspicuously inspired by John Cassavetes’s “Killing of a Chinese Bookie,” among other touchstones, it is a sincere and inspired meditation on art and creation, but in a loose, funny key. Mr. Ferrara has called “Go Go Tales” his “first intentional comedy,” a self-deprecating (if sometimes true!) comment for an artist who has always known how to make you gasp with laughter and sometimes in horror.
