Gerry was a surprise for me. I Absolutely LOVED this movie as not much was said and the whole scenario unraveled inside ones head. Truly arthouse cinema. I cant believe Hollywood got this one right.

I cant believe Hollywood got this one right. I believe the people who didnt care for this movie probably have too much going on inside their own heads and cant relax into the true essence of being lost in the desert. Well done Casey Affleck and Matt Damon ! ! ! ;~), Expand

I gave it 1 point because it did one thing well; it made me feel exactly what the characters were feeling. Unfortunately, what the characters felt was lost, desperate and at some points in intense pain.

I gave it 1 point because it did one thing well; it made me feel exactly what the characters were feeling. Unfortunately, what the characters felt was lost, desperate and at some points in intense pain.
It doesn't have any metaphors or philosophies to analyse because it has fewer words in the script than most films have on the back of the DVD box.
If you like long, silent, beautiful views of desert scenery feel free to try this, as it's all you'll get. Though you could always just go on the Internet, search for a photograph of a desert and stare at that for 2 hours for much the same effect.

Gus Van Sant's minimalist, non-narrative "Gerry" is a film that needs no narrative direction - it's a movie about being lost, and as a viewer you have the choice to become lost with it (watching it in isolation might help).

However, if you find you cannot do that, it becomes little more than an endurance test - one that you are likely to lose. Collapse

I gave this a zero because they didn't have lower numbers. All you "brilliant" art cinema-freaks that find this waste of electricity and human effort entertaining or meaningful make me sick.

All you "brilliant" art cinema-freaks that find this waste of electricity and human effort entertaining or meaningful make me sick. Gus, Casey and Matt should be sued for adding to global warming for the non-green energy used to make it. The real story would have been much more interesting to portray and more meaningful. I would also like to sue to get the two hours of my life wated watching that tripe. Expand

I don't know what could have been better but perhaps more explanation and an explanation at the end of the boring photography.
