Such a masterpiece of cinematography and scene composition. The narrative is mostly told with the landscape. This is a film in which every single shot just fills the screen, and the characters put life and expression into it. With a strong and classic cumplicity with photography and at times some influence from comics. Masterful use of sound and music, that fills the voids with the same character as the motion does.
Two roads diverged in a desert, and they— They took the one less traveled by, And that made all the difference. GERRY is a movie that may try one's patience, but offers rewards of beautifully filmed scenery, audacious long takes, and a coaxing invitation to examine companionship, responsibility, recrimination, regret, and endurance.
It was really great to watch this - apart from being incredibly beautiful, it helped me to add some ideas to my own secret project. I felt I was really traveling along with them both and those landscapes filled my head with fresh and infatuated ideas. thank you Gus.
Probably the least essential of the trilogy, I appreciate the effort though. The most glaring flaw that comes to mind is that I do not ever believe that they are lost in a desert. They go through four different types of terrain, it was obviously shot in California!
More tedious than Elephant & Last Days but still quite the feat with all those tracking shots. I assumed it was Steadicam but the BTS film showed that they built miles of dolly track and had a crane which is quite the technical feat. Affleck and Damon are okay. I wish that we got more out of the characters but it aimed for simplicity and succeeded.
