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…
Thelma & Louise tells a simple story about a waitress and her girlfriend who go on a trip to free themselves from their boyfriends but everything goes wrong when one of them shoots a rapist. As I said, the story may be simple, but the script itself is great because, as the film rolls, we start caring about the characters and about the world around them. Initially, the film presents itself as a crime comedy where the slick entertaining dialogues are evident, but, later, it becomes a more complex (and maybe less amusing) flick about a race against destiny to the border of Mexico, a film about trust and about friendship, always accompanied by a stylized atmosphere embedded by the acclaimed…
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…
Feminist road-movie, man-hating escapism? Yes and no; although Thelma and Louise has many male characters that are deplorable; it's not exactly dishonest, and even then, some of the characters; like Brad Pitt's are surprisingly humane and sympathetic.
I've never really thought that a lot of men are for lack of better word, attractive. Sure, conventionally attractive men exist and I can admit when a man is well made; but I've always had a sort of soft spot for Brad Pitt; not in the flaccid dick kind of way either. He's just one of those guys men (like me) half-wish to be and the sort of guy most men want to look like.
Saying that, I'm okay looking the way I…
A New Mexico highway patrol officer. Must have been my cousin
One of the best road trip movies, with such a vibrant energy (and even comedy, despite some of the darker incidents) and fantastic performances from both leading women. It's not perfect in its treatment of men (they seem to be caught in a male version of the Madonna complex), but golly is it refreshing in its portrayal of flawed women and friendship. I cannot overstate the importance of, and the sheer delight of, seeing two women and their enduring friendship carry a movie.
Cuán importante es la química en pantalla cuando la historia seguirá de inicio a fin a dos personajes en constante interacción. Susan Sarandon y Geena Davis son magníficas, talentosas, y no menos importante, hermosas y divinas interpretando a unas mujeres en busca de la libertad merecida. Ridley Scott en su punto máximo, demostrando soberbia y control sobre el guion, de por sí ya bastante sólido y sustancial. Y ese desenlace, verdaderamente icónico e inolvidable, que pone la piel de gallina gracias a también a la música de Hans Zimmer.
I would've liked this a lot more had that nice cop not existed in the movie at all or at least not been so ridiculously kind, it really detracted from the "the law is unreliable" message that Louis kept bringing up and the whole "hopelessly falling further down the rabbit hole" feel.
I felt they could've gone further with the whole mischief thing, I'm wondering why they didn't try stealing themselves a less brightly colored car.
I'd kinda had liked some survival conflicts thrown in like them being recognized at a restaurant or store and needing to run, their car breaking down, or them altogether ditching the car and going camping because they're too tired to find a hotel. Then again I guess the movie had to stop at some point.
That ending was incredible.
I knew kind of from looking at this movie and reading about I would like it and I was right because I actually loved this movie and empowering it was especially for women. This movie had great meaning to of escaping the reality of your life
First watch. I was eleven years old when this film was released, so it's hard for me to turn back time and put this film into context. That said, even today, it stands out as a tale of badass female empowerment that doesn't pull many punches, despite the humor and feel-good elements that were pervasive in many major studio releases of the era. This was pretty much everything I hoped it would be.
