I watched “Gerry” on DVD today. It has been a long time since I had to fastforward a movie while watching it for the first time. I don’t even remember that I ever did it. I had to do it with “Gerry”. After I finished watching it for the first time, I immidiately fastforwarded through it again just to make sure that I didn’t miss anything. I didn’t.
Two guys, both named Gerry, for some strange reason (like playing their RPG) get lost in the desert. It’s not excalty a desert. It’s something in the middle between desert, prairie, a hilly terrain. It might have been interesting. Very interesting. Especially considering the fact that don’t have any food or water with them. But it wasn’t. All of their talking was a once in a while asking each other which way to go. That’s it. One of them also got a bit more depressed then the other. The other got pissed off with it and killed the guy after several days when they were all out of strength. And then he found out that the highway was like five miles away. So he will feel a bit guilty for the rest of his life. Maybe.
See this film if you like watching a couple of silent dudes walking for several days without any talk in the places which are not exactly magnificant. I’ll meanwhile vote it as 2 out of 10.
