What a kick-ass of a movie!
Davis and Sarandon are amazing as these two funny, courageous and unsatisfied women that leave for a weekend-off in the woods and end up having the greatest adventure of their lives on a amazing trip across America.
This movie manages to be serious and humorous on the right moments and it's a joy to watch!
When I started this, I though, "Really? This is Ridley Scott's best film in between Blade Runner and Gladiator? This seems like a scene out of the sitcom based on Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore." But Scott Directs Sarandon, Davis, and Pitt into three great performances, and one of the most memorable (if overblown) finales of all time. Thelma & Louise lives up to its hype.
First time seeing this since its release in '91 and found it a slow burn that builds to some very memorable moments before collapsing under its own weight in its somewhat tacky conclusion. Sarandon and Davis both delivered incendiary performances that resulted in oscar noms for both. The problem with the oscar winning script is still that every male is either an asshole, rapist or douche. Small quibble?
