More Info:
  • David Sterritt

    Take a chance on Gerry. It's only a movie, and you'll get out alive no matter what happens on the screen. You might even find you've had a rare adventure.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Conceptually bold and rapturously beautiful Gerry, a minimalist landscape film that's unlike anything on the American independent scene.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The movie is on some level a stunt, but it has the fervent, sun-dazed pull of an authentic experience unfolding in real time, with glints of drama, comedy, and terror mixed into the almost-but-not-quite tedium.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    Like the man to whom this film is dedicated, Ken Kesey, Gerry just wants to go "further."

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Watching Gus Van Sant's Gerry is the cinematic equivalent of watching paint dry. I mean that as high praise.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Casual moviegoers may enjoy it, too, if they follow a simple rule: Stop looking for the way out and let yourself get lost.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    With all its quirks, Gerry seeps into your pores like the wind-whipped sand that stings the faces of these disoriented hikers.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    About as non-narrative a film as you're likely to see in commercial theaters. This makes it a curiosity and, less charitably, something of a gimmick, but mostly it makes it a challenge.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The movie is so gloriously bloody-minded, so perverse in its obstinacy, that it rises to a kind of mad purity. The longer the movie ran, the less I liked it and the more I admired it.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Somewhere between profound and ludicrous, kind of like a cross between "Waiting for Godot" and "Dude, Where's My Car?"

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    The result is like a "Waiting for Godot" for the video-game generation.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    For those with the patience to latch onto Van Sant's slow, methodical groove. It's worth trying.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Gregory Weinkauf

    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.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    In some strange way, I admire the enterprise. Like his Gerrys, Van Sant doesn't seem to know where he's going to wind up when he embarks on these journeys. The ether that seeps into his head might be the price we have to pay for his keeping his mind so open.

    Slate Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    It's certainly a provocation, with a few funny moments, and for my money it's less phony and offensive than "Finding Forrester."

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    A gorgeously shot endurance test that is impossible to get through on anything less than a full night's sleep and a double shot of espresso.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    A wee Boy Scout would have done far better in the wilds. It’s tough to think "Waiting for Godot" when what you’re watching is closer to "Dumb & Dumber."

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    Gerry isn't much of anything, and doesn't claim to be. It's a movie stripped of its movieness.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • John Powers

    Van Sant ultimately reveals so little about this odd couple that we frankly don't give a damn what happens to them. Nor, apparently, does he.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    If it were a landscape painting, Gerry would deserve a place in the National Gallery. But as a movie...deserves its own wing in The Old Curiosity Shop.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Exercise in existential tedium that it is, Gerry isn't without devotees.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Merle Bertrand

    For the most part, Gerry is a lot of self-indulgent baloney.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Gerry moves slowly and deliberately, like a torture technique, leaving us feeling as dry and dusty and lost as its two characters. Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    Long takes do not a masterpiece make, and the suspicion that the whole thing is a lark is only bolstered by Damon and Affleck's inability to contain their giggles.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Defiantly uncommunicative picture.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    In the end, Gerry is beyond the simple question of pleasure. Seeing it may be no fun at all, but then discomfort is part of the price one pays in learning.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stanley Kauffmann

    Gerry is all manner without any trace of depth.

    The New Republic Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    The desert is clean in Gerry, but it's also empty.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    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.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    The most screamingly obvious reaction to Gerry is: what a load of pseudo-arty you-know-what.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

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