  • Cast: Matt Damon, Casey Affleck

Two young men (Damon and Affleck), both called Gerry, park their car in Death Valley and head off on a hiking trail in search of 'the thing'. Both seem extremely under-prepared for their expedition, soon becoming hopelessly lost in the desert. As the days pass in this wilderness, their cheerfulness gives way to a sense of dread. But the fragmentary script (written with his two lead actors) offers no psychological motivations for its characters' actions. Filmed in long takes in California, Argentina and the Salt Plains of Utah, Van Sant's experimental film is certainly a visually compelling experience.
