I was curious about this film, but totally unprepared for how much it affected me. GERRY worked, for me, on many different levels. In some ways, it felt like a horror film, but without any supernatural element. Two men get lost. That&#39;s the premise, and the movie takes its time to really explore what it feels like to suddenly have no idea where you are. As the film went on, something about it began to feel abstract, as if the film wasn&#39;t just about being lost physically, but about what it feels like to feel alone in the universe. I don&#39;t mean that to sound flighty or pretentious, but the film gradually moves into a state of deep sadness that is hard to describe. I&#39;m sure (from the looks of some of the particularly angry comments some people have posted) that this film won&#39;t be appreciated by everyone who sees it. Some may find it dull. I found it completely absorbing, and unlike anything I&#39;d ever seen.<br/><br/>(By the way, if you don&#39;t like a film, that&#39;s fine. But some of the ANGER displayed below is completely unjustified, and perhaps a sign of some deeper trauma that has nothing to do with the movie you didn&#39;t like.)

Like many who have commented on this film, right after I saw it on DVD last night, I really didn&#39;t like it. However, this morning, I really came to the conclusion that like any piece of art, once it leaves the artist, it is up for interpretation, so here is my two cents: Gerry (whether he is two persons, or one person and the alter ego, as some have suggested) is really a product of world popular culture. We wonder if he has ever read a book, or had an original thought. We expect this to be a story that give us a rich backstory (who are these guys, where did they come from, where are they going, etc) and instead we get vapid dialog about Wheel of Fortune, or perhaps a rehashing of Dungeons and Dragons? These guys HAVE no backstory.. .they watch tv, play video games, and are completely out of touch with nature and the world at large. It is only at the very end of the movie, when death looks them in the face, that the thought process is engaged - probably for the first time in thier (his) life. They reach down deep inside and finally notice which direction the sun sets in, which way is north, and think about direction. . .is this what they were looking for in the first place - why they came to the wilderness? Is this a metaphore for life? I don&#39;t want to trash the younger generation (I am 45) because one could look back to Rebel Without a Cause in the 1950&#39;s to see the emptyness of suburban American life even then.<br/><br/>The slow pace of the film is the antithesis of MTV quick cuts, so I doubt if the intended audience, those under 30, will be able to sit through this - and isn&#39;t that the point!

I saw this movie at the Sundance Film Festival and hated it. There is no plot or character development to speak of. There is beautiful scenery and some very lovely camera shots, but the camera frequently lingers for 5 or 10 minutes at a time, circling around the object of its attention, without any dialogue at all. I understand that there were only about 100 camera shots in the entire film. It was reminiscent of Blow-up in some ways, but without as much interest. I&#39;m sure it&#39;s an &quot;important&quot; film from the director&#39;s point of view, but the audience seems to have been entirely ignored. Of the 25-30 people I talked to about it, one liked it and the rest hated it.
