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…
"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.…
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…
Became one of my favorites right away!

Ja... leuke film. Meer valt er niet te zeggen. Behalve dat ze in de jaren 90 echt de meest belachelijke kledij en kapsels hadden.
Tof verhaaltje, de beeldjes vielen wel mee en ja ik beken... ik heb soms hardop moeten lachen.
