Consensus: The type of uncompromising film that divides filmgoers over whether it is profound or pretentious.

This movie really shook me up. A minimalist, borderline abstract depiction of two young men fading slowly away in a remote, seemingly endless desert. The… More

It's the adventures of Gerry and Gerry, which sounds either like a cop show title or the title to something about gay guys, although I might just be saying… More
