Michael Dequina

A difficult, demanding sit, but it wouldn't have been nearly as fascinating and rewarding a film if it weren't.

The two stars...[Casey Affleck and Matt Damon]...both playing characters named Gerry, wander across the desert for some reason, and if you enjoy watching them on any pretext, you'll probably enjoy this; if you don't, you won't.

Gerry, in all ways, is a film geek film. Not for mass consumption, perhaps, but nonetheless a potent expression for those that like this sort of thing.

Likely to sharply divide critics, Gerry goes back to his indie roots with a minimalist work that carries itself almost entirely through the awesome yet austere visuals and sounds.

Lessons of Darkness

Absolutely transfixing at one moment and unbearably boring the next.

Las Vegas CityLife

Although the images from the film are poetic and are more fondly recalled in hindsight, in this case art film for art film's sake doesn't fly very high.

Hiking for Godot: Van Sant's existential Blair Witch Project's daemon lurks within.

Gerry proposes simplicity; even the most capsulated descriptions of it are dubious.

Nothing special to show at the end for this existential trip to nowhere.

Are these guys as smart as they sound or as dumb as they act?

The picture can be read as a warning about the perils of improvisation -- a neat joke given how fruitful that method proves here.

One of those films that are better in hindsight - you won't forget the scenery and the torture of enduring it. See it if you're a masochist, don't bother if you're not.

Mesmerising, daring and defiantly leftfield.

You have to stay with Gerry, which starts out as a willful stunt, turns into a sadistic endurance test and ends up as something surprisingly affable and engaging.

Shadows on the Wall

In a hideously arty style Affleck, Damon and Van Sant actually tell us a few things about the man-vs-man and man-vs-nature debate. But you have to look pretty hard to get it.

An amusing, sometimes rivetingly uneventful curiosity, nothing more.

If you can get lost along with it, Van Sant's Gerry is actually anything but empty: At times it's tonically liberating.

Jam! Movies

The staggering beauty of the wilderness is set in contrapuntal rhythm with the staggering banality of the two Gerrys as they become more dispirited, more disoriented.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

Though the film is shorter than two hours, it's so sluggishly paced and uninteresting that it feels as if it's actually several days long.

Gerry is a fascinating idea for a movie -- can you make a movie so boring that it transcends boredom? -- but not a fascinating movie.
