Affleck's career entered a "dark" period, with a series of supporting roles in critical and commercial failures.
Robert Koehler of Variety found him "bland"  while Carla Meyer of the San Francisco Chronicle said that he did not make "much of an impression, [but may] have been too depressed to really act. One positive experience Affleck had during this period was working with Van Sant and cinematographer Harris Savides on Finding Forrester as Van Sant's assistant and technical consultant: "Can you imagine a better film school that that?
Gus is not only somebody who I love a lot but is also who has taught me, maybe more than anybody else in film.

In , Affleck and Damon starred in Van Sant's experimental drama Gerry , playing two men who get lost while hiking in the desert. I saw one scene recently out of context at the Telluride Film Festival and I can't believe anyone ever sat through the whole thing. Affleck's first leading role was in 's little-seen independent comedy-drama Lonesome Jim , directed by Steve Buscemi.
He played a depressed writer who returns from New York to live with his parents in Indiana, and begins a relationship with Liv Tyler 's character. He probably can't be a star in big movies because his drawback is a voice that sounds like a snivel drawn through a wet nasal passage into a whine Affleck had the wherewithal to bare more of the passive-aggressive rage inside Affleck had a breakthrough year in , with the release of two films featuring critically acclaimed performances.

While The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Gone Baby Gone were a financial failure and a modest box office success, respectively,   Affleck's acting career was widely believed to be at a turning point. Even in the midst of Phoenix's most oddball and obsessive torment, it's boring What, exactly, is the point of a joke that nobody really gets? Ty Burr of The Boston Globe described it as "an interesting but half-baked exercise in persona deconstruction, celebrity politics, and meta-meta-entertainment Parts of it are close to genius; most of it is actively torturous to watch.

He's a low-charisma mumbler who tends to keep his characters' emotions bottled up, making him the rare performer who can convey as much with a sheet over his head as he does without.
