Thelma & Louise
Somebody said get a life... so they did.
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,…
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…
Scavenger Hunt 16 - Film #1
Task #6. A road-trip movie.
Unfortunately, I knew the ending to this film but actually it didn't spoil my enjoyment at all.
Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon are spell-binding. Seeing their development as characters was really meaningful.
This film has a lot to comment on regarding female empowerment, freedom, friendship, sex and relationships and I strongly, strongly recommend people watch this.
Breathtaking views and great accents also.
Oh and Brad Pitt.
"something's crossed over in me, and i can't go back; i couldn't live."
i love that line.
i get it.
With my entire movie collection stuck inside dozens of boxes for the next 10-14 days, I was left to channel surf last night. Luckily I found Thelma & Louise on Sundance, which I hadn't seen in well over a decade. The rewatch was refreshing on several levels, and seeing it with a different eye this time around made me appreciate some of its unique qualities a bit more.
At the time of this film's release, Ridley Scott really didn't have much humor to speak of in his filmography. Now I'm not saying that Thelma & Louise is an all-out comedy, but it definitely has a lot of elements that make you frequently smile and giggle, and it features characters that are equally…
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.…
Susan Sarandon and Gina Davis both give amazing performances in this movie.
this is my all time favourite film.
every time i watch this movie, i can feel my southern accent clawing it's way out of my mouth
Box office $ 45.4 million
THELMA & LOUISE has to be regarded as a pure 90s classic that brought up a considerable amount of risk in creating a first-person feminist formula into a mainstream movie, which is often missing. It pulls off fantastically true in form, with the exceptional Southern character talents of the two lady fugitives on the run, Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon, who may stand out as memorable on the silver screen. Let's not forget that silly truck driver they pass quite often, and of course, cowboy Brad Pitt as a young student. While not needed to be fully reliant on action substances like gunshooting, there is good chemistry within its grasp. Every single minute should not be…
I'm always a little skeptical whenever a movie gets rave reviews (I've been burned before), but I always put up with it because sometimes the movie does live up to the established hype.
Maybe more of a review later. I'm tired. 1/2 off for the kinda bad rain effects imo, but the movie was really really good.
I love these ride or die lesbians.
how to be a feminist challenge | 9. a classic movie you feel slightly guilty you haven't seen yet
I feel so lucky to have had the chance to see this at the cinema, what a transcending experience to see them on the big screen...
j.d: well, if you don't mind me saying so, he sounds like a real asshole
me: brad pitt has no trouble spotting an asshole because he is a real man
If it wasn't for Brad Pitt, I think I would've quit midway through it.
