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.

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

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

You can imagine Van Sant, Damon and Affleck snickering when they read pretentious reviews pronouncing deep meaning and skill in the film.

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.

It's a sort of experimental film-school riff on Waiting for Godot, and while it's pretty tedious, it's better than it probably sounds.

[Van Sant has] managed something abstract yet explicit, and he's at his most honorable and purest in the aesthetics of filmmaking.

There's elegance and grace here, fostering an opportunity to reflect upon why men get so dutiful about being down. It's worth the hike.

If a picture was ever worth 1000 words, this is it (but I doubt there are 1000 words of dialog here) - minimalist filmmaking at its best.

... as abstract an American film as you'll ever see starring a Hollywood golden boy, less a story than a striking and compelling experiment in filmmaking.

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