Gerry 2002

Unknown

Gus Van Sant seems to alternate his more Hollywood efforts with striking experimental work; this 2002 drama brings both world together as Matt Damon and Casey Affleck play two men called Gerry who find themselves lost in a desert with little water to sustain them. Plotwise, that’s about it; the script, co-written by Van Sant, Damon and Affleck is about how the layers of Gerry’s character are unpeeled by the situation, making the film a meditation on personality and identity. Based on a true-life murder, it’s no surprised that mortality lies ahead for one of the Gerry’s, but the patient long-shots employed by Van Sant and the strong performances from the leads make Gerry a curiosity worth seeking out.
