Whilst on a short weekend getaway, Louise shoots a man who had tried to rape Thelma. Due to the incriminating circumstances, they make a run for it and thus a cross country chase ensues for the two fugitives. Along the way, both women rediscover the strength of their friendship and surprising aspects of their personalities and self-strengths in the trying times.
Saddest thing about this film is that it'd still seem gutsy if a major studio released it today. Louise's righteous fury just before she pulls the trigger ("In the future, when a woman's crying like that, she isn't having any fun!") has lost none of its accusatory power; that the shooting is unjustified, in response to a crude insult after the immediate danger has passed, is crucial, and it's hard to imagine how it escaped being altered during development. Plus, let's count all the major motion pictures that were subsequently made about two complex women who oh are we done counting already no I'm afraid Bride Wars doesn't qualify. I'm even somewhat inclined to forgive T&L's one massive flaw,…
i saw this 2night with my bff and no one was in the theater behind me so i googled brad pitt nostrils and i found this
Film #18 of Project 90
”In the future, when a woman is crying like that, she isn’t having any fun!”
Two women. One car. An endless road. Ridley Scott takes those simple elements and tries to make a convincing film about two women who are seemingly tired of their lives which is dictated by the evil men. From a sociological point of view Thelma & Louise is an important movie, a rather radical feminist movie with female heroes and some very strong messages about the way a masculine society sees women as sexual objects, treats them violently and ignores their talents and their freedom. That will obviously fascinate those who are watching movies for their “important and life changing messages”. I’m…
Thelma & Louise transcends my mediocre star rating, because one (guy's) perspective cannot capture what the spirit of this film offers. It's truly one of those rare films catered entirely toward women, delivering the plot from their perspective and constructing the concerns, mentalities and motivations of these women from a genuine, uncensored place of feminine sensibilities. It's tough to explain, but I can appreciate that this film may overjoy a female moviegoer for truly being made for them, really a startling disparity from the masculinity-driven film-world of the past 125 years.
If I had to give an actual critique of this film, I really found the film's narrative to be quite conventional and uninteresting, with only brief, fleeting moments containing any…
"something's crossed over in me, and i can't go back; i couldn't live."
i love that line.
i get it.
Are we absolutely sure that was Ridley Scott?
Not some rising young fellas named Joel and Ethan or really anybody else, perhaps?
That's a film so profoundly filled with soul, it's incredibly hard to believe it came from an uber-pragmatic English director that usually tackles such unshakably pessimistic tales. More than simply delivering the already ludicrously entertaining road trip movie that's the core of the script, Scott and collaborators are able to breathe life into this rich, colorful, grounded and at the same time fantastic universe in which these insanely charismatic characters live their mad adventure.
All technical elements are stellar as is the norm for Scott's projects, but the astoundingly pretty cinematography and the amazing soundtrack deserved special accolades.…
This was a quite fun watch! The film starts with a rather serious tone but the tone lightens as the movie goes on. It slowly deviates from reality more and more and what seemed like a serious drama in the beginning turns into a sort of an action-comedy by the end! I'd say that this was a different approach to the theme of domestic violence!
maybe brad pitt was at the bottom waiting for them... gotta say i couldn't stop laughing when the cop is humiliated and forced into the trunk of his car, acting out every woman's revenge fantasy
Horrible Southern Accents: The Movie.
Jesus, how did this movie get so much recognition?
Did Ridley Scott direct this?
Fantastic film with a great soundtrack.
Starts kind of abysmally - the scene between Thelma and her husband was laughably bad, complete with its construction pratfall punchline (and him chasing them away by 3 pm for no good reason other than to make sure no one's around when Louise comes to pick her up) - so it took me a while to warm into it. It helps that Scott's stylistics (while still present) take a back seat much of the time, and that Sarandon just knocks it out of the park, providing the backbone for a very tricky tone that slides in and out of realism in ways that could be catastrophic but, miraculously, aren't. Madsen may be the best I've ever seen him, Keitel is…
This movie does no wrong. And everytime it's like the first time I've seen it. Just so beautiful
This is a lot of fun. The tonal shift was done so gradually and expertly crafted that it was only at the end that I fully understood how massive the change had been.
Definitely one of Ridley Scott's best.
Loved it. Beautiful to look at. Funny, sad and incredibly moving. One of the few movies that seamlessly shifts tones throughout and it pays off massively.
