Gerry (film)

Warning: Wikipedia contains spoilers

Gerry (2003) is a film directed by Gus Van Sant starring Matt Damon and Casey Affleck[?].

It is a story of two driving companions, both named Gerry, who get lost in the desert after they agree on their mutual disinterest in a meeting with an undisclosed purpose, which they had driven into the wilderness to attend. After several days of wandering around mostly in silence, both protagonists collapse due to fatigue and dehydration. The weaker of the two (Affleck) proclaims that he will not go on and decides to "leave". Whereupon, Gerry (Damon) struggles on top of Gerry (Affleck), dispassionately strangling him to death. After a moment, he rises to his feet to move on. Walking only a dozen yards or so, he discovers a busy highway on the horizon. Gerry catches a ride with a family, whom he watches in awkward silence.

The soundtrack is a sparse composition of tones, by Arvo Pärt.

The film is dedicated to the memory of Ken Kesey.
