Inyo Film Journal No. 280: ‘Gerry’: Where in the world are we, whether watching or walking?

March 20, 2014

The landscapes used in “Gerry,” directed by Gus Van Sant, begin in Argentina, progress to many places in Death Valley, and end in Utah on a salt lake. There are two characters, friends, both named Gerry who take off for a hike and end up getting lost. They don’t talk too much in the rest of the film, and when they do they use a slang particular to their long friendship.
Mostly they walk, and walk and walk.
