After a series of studio films that some would say led him astray from independent filmmaking, Van Sant returns with a sense of rediscovery and experimentation that marked his early work. Gerry, shot in long takes in the desert by cinematographer Harris Savides, was improvised by its stars (Matt Damon and Casey Affleck). The result is compellingly complex yet mesmerizingly simple. Including a minimalist piano score by Arvo Pärt, the film follows two men named Gerry who are lost in the desert and moving, breathing, even walking in unison through a physical and mental labyrinth on their desperate search for a way out. The Village Voice proclaimed Gerry to be Van Sant's "most provocative film yet." 2002, U.S., color, 35mm, 103 minutes.
