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.

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

If nothing else, Gerry is restful, though I'm not sure that counts as a recommendation.

Now we know what happens when director Gus Van Sant gets bored. He makes us bored.

There's a purity of purpose in Gerry -- a clean, unwavering focus -- that makes the movie feel strangely exhilarating, even when nothing is happening on the screen.

On the surface it may seem as barren as its desert, but underneath is a beautiful and surreal meditation.

Even though it is hugely self-indulgent, painfully slow and as repetitive as walking around in circles in the desert, the film has a sort of twisted charm by its end.

Ragingly bad art that contributes to a definition of independent film as something no one would want to sit through.

The best way to approach Gerry -- perhaps the only way -- is to treat it as a sanctuary, a film to be visited the way you would a Buddhist temple or a piece of ambient music.

After a while, you may start to feel like Gerry One and Two: a little fuzzy in the brain.

The movie is so gloriously bloody-minded, so perverse in its obstinacy, that it rises to a kind of mad purity.

Arty exercise that strands Matt Damon and Casey Affleck (both named Gerry) in a desert with little to say and do except lose themselves in an existential wasteland of doomed beauty.

I'd be lying if I said it didn't annoy the hell out of me for most of its 103-minute running time. But I might watch it again sometime and try a little harder to get on its wavelength.

The results are part biblical allegory, part existential crucible, and remind one that anytime the meaning of life is questioned, it's positive -- because it presumes the possibility of meaning.

A series of images that have little meaning or emotional impact beyond their prettiness, and which become less compelling as time crawls slowly by.

An anxious movie-object that might well wonder whether its minimalist aspiration is a matter of ambitious purity or empty pretense.
