Drama
Breathtakingly gorgeous cinematography, weird and inventive dialogue, unnaturally natural performances and a heart-wrenching, minimal story have doomed this film to obscurity. Basically, two guys go for a walk in the desert and get lost. End of story. If you like looking at 10-minute long sequences of people silently walking through the desert (and if you don’t, then why are you living in Tucson?) then you should see this movie, which is easily one of the best things out this year. Stars Matt Damon and Casey Affleck and director Gus Van Sant wrote this in what was obviously a labor of love, and like most labors of love it’s gonna have to be it’s own reward, because it’s way too subtle and quiet for American audiences. It’s essentially a 1960s European art film, a la Antonioni, but made in the early 21st century after we’ve all given up on art and settled for exploding space monster franchises. Consider your ticket price a donation to the preservation of culture, and go see this, you know, for me. Because I ask so little of you.

'Gerry' asks a lot from its audience, but it delivers beauty and simplicity. »
