The dullest film I have ever seen! I don't care how visually pretty it is, I don't care that the two leads are in mortal danger because they have no personality. There's nothing interesting about the direction, and I don't care that that's the point, if anything that makes it worse. I like plenty of slow movies, one of my favorite directors is Jim Jarmusch and his films are all about leisure.
When despair reigns, the silver lining is that melancholy and art make the best of friends. There is so much beauty in this cinematic articulation, even in the unsympathetic ambiguities and that questionable denouement. One of the finest evocations of the wilderness, figuratively and literally. Poetic minimalist cinema that lingers in the mind well after viewing beyond all rational reason.
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.
