Gus Van Sant


103' - 2002 - Mystery, Drama, Adventure - Dialogue: English
Director: Gus Van Sant Composer: Arvo Pärt With: Casey Affleck, Matt Damon
A car meanders along a desert highway. Two men who both call each other Gerry, are driving through the desert regions of Death Valley, travelling towards an unknown destination. At the end of the road, they pull over and set out on foot, presuming they're getting close to what they've come to find. Their first dialogue exchange refers to an intangible “thing” they will find at the end of the trail. After a spontaneous footrace, they opt to forget “the thing” and head back, but, having stepped off the main path to avoid the tourists, they find that they have lost their way and are alone in the wild, without food, water, or other provisions. The harder they try to find their way back to their car, the deeper they dig themselves into the desert.
