5.0 out of 5 stars A cult classic -- not just for feminists. Sept. 7 2006
"BOOM!!" Under fire from Thelma and Louise's guns, the tongue-wagging truck-driver's pride and joy (and extension of his manhood) goes up in flames. Incredulous, its owner stares at the spectacle and lets off a pitifully helpless and, in its helplessness, hilariously comical tirade against the two female outlaws; whose only reason not to shoot him, too, at this point is that it is so utterly more poignant to let him sit all alone by the road side in the vastness of the Southwest, robbed of all attributes of male potency and left to the pity of whoever is eventually going to pick him up and give him a ride back to civilization.

By the time of this incident, Thelma has mutated from a subdued and insecure housewife to a self-assured, fearless queen of the highway. ("Something has crossed over" in her, she tells Louise shortly before their final encounter with their truck-driving nemesis.) Louise in turn, who had taken the lead early on in their flight from the police, has overcome her intermittent bout of despair and is back to her old self, too. Now wanted not only for questioning in connection with the death of the rapist shot by Louise but also for armed robbery in another state, knowing that being questioned by the police will inevitably add a charge of murder for the incident which set off their run (and probably also knowing deep down inside that there is not going to be a happy ending to their weekend trip anyway), Thelma and Louise have stopped to care what is going to happen next. Thus emboldened, they make a last great run for it, which ultimately leads them to the vast, endlessly deep gorges of the Grand Canyon.

"Thelma and Louise" is all and none of the things as which it has been described.

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable movie! July 13 2004
Originality is the supreme adjective for this picture. It won deservedly the Academy Award as Original script. Ridley Scott made an authentical road movie but loaded with humor , cynicism , haunting and above all very anti macho movie.
The sinister fact that will turn a twist of fate in these two women who only wanted to have fun just for a while will become in a permanent and menacing nightmare for both of them .
The spectacular landscapes are a huge background all the way reminds us Paris Texas . The use of big lenses and the arresting images walks together with a solid script .
Brad Pitt appears briefly as the hitch hike guy who eventually seduces Thelma . Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis are the mirror images of Sundance Kid , you may consider it a speculation, but think it carefully . Since the accidental murder , and the sweet smell of the risk when Geena robes a supermarket , the dramatic car chase is very close in spirit to the sudamerican getaway and above all the ending sequence .
Keitel works efficiently , once more and Scott shows us once more why he's on the top direction .
Consider this one from its release as one of the most powerful nineties cult movies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Road to Empowerment April 29 2004
By A Customer
Road to Empowerment
Thelma & Louise inspired a wide range of criticism after its debut in 1991.
Brenda Cooper cites numerous reviews in her article "'Chick Flicks' as Feminist Texts: The Appropriation of the Male gaze in Thelma & Louise:" Sheila Benson's review represents one side when she accuses the film of being no more than "'bloody, sadistic or explosive revenge for the evils men do,' and ask[s] her readers: 'Are we so starved for "strong" women's roles that this revenge, and the pell-mell, lunatic flight that follows, fits anyone's definition of strength, or even more peculiarly, of neo-feminism?'" (par. 2). Cooper counters, "the film's alternative cinematic gazes that challenge and resist patriarchal construction [...] result [in] a subversive narrative that effectively negates complaints that Thelma (Geena Davis) and Louise's (Susan Sarandon) freedom is self-destructive and that male dominance is reaffirmed in screenwriter Callie Khouri's controversial screenplay" (par. 6). Although some critics have condemned the movie for its negative portrayal of women, in truth, Thelma & Louise is the story of two women's road to empowerment.
The opposition claims that the movie portrays women negatively because Thelma and Louise do not make sound decisions. The film does not require the audience to deny its personal values, but to consider the circumstances and reasoning behind Thelma and Louise's decisions. Cindy Griffin cities that, "The film also offers a vehicle for discussion on why Thelma and Louise behave the way they do and serves as a tool for educating individuals about the obstacles and oppression women face" (par. 19).

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern classic April 23 2004
I saw an interview with Susan Sarandon, and she said that "Thelma and Louise isn't about feminism, it's about human liberation." I completely agree.
If you put the sexual politics aside, what you have is a story of two human beings who have spent their whole lives being oppressed and controlled by other people. Louise (Sarandon) is a waitress with a tragic past and an unreliable boyfriend. Thelma is a housewife with an arrogant, controlling husband. The two decide to embark on an impromptu vacation, but while stopping for a couple of drinks at a redneck nightclub, Thelma is almost raped by a lecherous customer, and Louise shoots and kills him in the parking lot. Instead of going to the police, the two decide to skip the country and head to Mexico, but a string of unfortunate events forces the two to commit even more crimes, turning them into bona fide fugitives and outlaws.
Strangely, what the two characters discover is that their new lives as outlaws are more satisfying than the stifled lives they led before. At the end of the film, the two make a choice to remain free and never surrender, despite the consequences.
This film asks the question: is the only way to be free in our society to be an outlaw? The answer just might be yes.

It's a classic.
A road movie, a chick flick, a lot of fun and a serious ride through the lives of two good friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Buddy Movie.
This is definately Ridley Scott's best film to date. Thema and Louise may be one of the most popular chick flicks, but you do not have to be a woman to like it. Read more
