A terrific movie about friendship.
I loved this movie from the first time I saw it, but it wasn’t until I sat through it the third time that I figured out why. It is clever, exciting, and funny and is shot in the middle of the breathtaking scenery of the American Southwest. However, the thing that makes it special is its illustration of pure friendship. It may be difficult for some men to cross the gender boundary and connect with Thelma and Louise, yet doing so is critical to appreciating the film. If you can make the connection then you can get its message — we all need a friendship like the one Thelma and Louise had. This movie will strike a deep emotional chord…..if you aren’t afraid to let it. And if you happen to be too emotionally closed off to appreciate what I think the movie says about friendship I think that you will still enjoy the characters, acting, action, and humor. It is a ten out of ten.
A rare moment in cinema of the total rejection of the rule of law and patriarchy
The road movie is traditionally a male genre, relying on the sense of freedom and independence that having one’s own transport provides and which has usually been the privilege of men What is innovatory about “Thelma & Louise” is the way it reequips the genre for women
Thelma (Geena Davis) is a housewife trapped in a meaningless marriage, Louise (Susan Sarandon) is a waitress in a not very significant relationship They decide to give themselves a little space by taking off for a weekend But when Louise shoots a man who is trying to rape Thelma, they are precipitated into a far more radical break with their past lives
The setting of action in the American southwest and the acts of outlawry the women are obliged to commit in order to keep on the run give the film some of the feel of a Western What makes it nevertheless a women’s film is that the relationship between the two principals is at the center of the story The various men they encounter, both the ones they leave behind and those they meet on the road have less importance for Thelma and Louise than the two women do for each other
Predictably, the film met with hostility from some male viewers, on the grounds that the men were caricatured and that the film encouraged violence
