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.
"Gerry" is likely Gus Van Sant's most challenging film, not because the film consists of about 10% dialogue, but more because of the subtext constantly questioning 'what is this teaching us about human nature?' In the same vein as "Last Days", much of the storyline is filtered through Terrence Malick-like imagery, which sustains the film's lack of a conventional narrative. Beautifully done, but not for everybody.
