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.

Emanuel Levy

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.

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

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

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

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

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.

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.

It is the kind of film that can be invested with all kinds of meaning, or none at all, and enjoyed purely as spectacle, the way one enjoys an Imax movie.

Fascinating, even if perversely so, and quite beautiful.

Adventurous and patient moviegoers should see the film for themselves. Just make sure to leave your watch at home.

A shaggy-dog story of slackers in the hands of an angry (or at least indifferent) god.
