so, in summary, i enjoyed Gerry immensely.
but, no like i said above (about My Life To Liv), i didn't hate the film. (at a brisk 85 minutes, i barely had time to register that i didnt care for it, until it was almost over), so i didnt hate it. i just didn't think it was very good. i couldnt relate to the characters, because the filmmaker seemed to not take them seriously, and that forced me out of believing in the film. macguffin, have you seen this, and if so, what did you think?
also, this ties into my SECOND QUESTION in my 'what makes a film great' thread. is a film great because it IS, or because of what it does? if i had seen this in the 1962 or whenever it came out, i might've loved this movie, but as it may have influenced tons of movies i DO like, it is neccesary for the doors it helped to open. however, looking back on this movie, its hard for me to see what made it so important because i've seen other movies that took ideas from this one. does that make any sense?
