Synopsis
Gus Van Sant returned to his roots in experimental filmmaking with this offbeat feature, whose dialogue was entirely improvised by its two person cast. Two men named Gerry (played by Matt Damon and Casey Affleck) are driving through the desert regions of Death Valley, traveling towards an unknown destination. They pull over and set out on foot, presuming they're getting close to what they've come to find. Before long, Gerry and Gerry are both lost in an unforgiving desert without food, water, or other provisions, and the harder they try to find their way back to their car, they only dig themselves deeper and deeper into the desert. Gus Van Sant originally began shooting Gerry in Argentina, but was soon dissatisfied with the weather and the terrain, opting to start over in California and Utah; the film premiered at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Gus Van Sant is a genius director in a society filled with dumb ones. obviously this is not his mainstreem movie, it is more of an indie flick in the likes of Elephant and LAst Days . It is not a fast to crack the talk new york movie but rather a meditative drama ,if that category exists. It is a film that that brings ART to the downfalling consumer before it is to late.
