The ultimate action chick road movie flick made by one of the true macho action directors in Hollywood. Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon are great together as they shoot the first "selfie" on film, but I'm not convinced that these girls would not like to do jail time together. That would only enhance their friendship to a new level would it not?
A simple plot is turned into grand epic that colides a law and order with untainted spirit in a manner of the "Vanishing Point" heights - and just like the latter, it speaks to anyone willing to listen beneath nice song collection and beautifully deserted scenery. It's an ode to friendship and Ridley Scott's greatest work outside of his earlier sci-fi classics.
Certainly the greatest women's film of all time. 'Thelma & Louise' is as powerful as it is empowering. It's a road movie with all the style and grit of 'Blade Runner', 'Alien' and any other of Ridley's finest. It's the most fun I've ever had watching a big budget flick, I felt like I was the unsung third best friend riding in the backseat of that gorgeous Thunderbird...
i was surprised that this movie made me so nervous. possibly a result of the intense conflicts that bubble and fissure throughout the movie but are never fully realized in the sense that delma and weezy are still living tropes but somehow remain full of emotion and friendship. delma!!!!!!!!
Took the well-worn outlaw road movie and reclaimed it for the women, resulting in a work that not only captured the feminine zeitgeist of its era, but also secured its place in the American Cinema firmament with two incredible central performances and one of the ballsiest, most iconic final moments in history.
