House of the Devil (2009) Dir. Ti West

Starting this September FILM CLVB will present a series of double feature film nights curated by artists. The first of these double features will include Michelangelo Antonioni’s Zabriskie Point (1970) and Gus Van Sant’s Gerry(2002) and is presented by James Marshall.
Zabriskie Point was to be Michelangelo Antonioni’s greatest triumph, a crowning achievement in an already seminal body of work and a bold affirmation of his commercial ascendance in America. It was to be the Italian-born director’s state-of-the-epoch address, a provocative document of the political injustice, civil warfare, and extreme moral and cultural polarities defining the end of the 1960s.
Gerry follows the misadventures of two young men (Matt Damon and Casey Affleck) who head out for a nature walk and get lost. They spend the rest of the movie wandering around in the American desert, looking for water and a way out.
Van Sant devotes great chunks of the film to simply showing the two friends — who call each other “Gerry” — trudging through the sand, enduring the heat, not saying a word. Ironically, the characters also use the word “Gerry” to describe a screw-up or a wrong turn.
