What really makes this film is not only it's exciting plot and chase, but the way in which it has an acute combination of every aspect you need to make a film truly brilliant: The two main characters are delightful-it really is rare to relate to characters the way in which I did to Thelma and Louise, the issues dealt with are controversial, evocative and very involving, it's exciting, it's beautiful and it's devastatingly funny. It would be an insult to dismiss this as a "chick-flick" it has a very deep meaning and a rare brilliance that could not possibly keep it confined to this tacky categorisation. It is widely accessible and I'm confident both sexes would get a lot out of it. However, I must admit, girls, you will love it!
This is a film about independence, power and life, and ultimately about friendship.
It comes highly recommended-don't miss it!
There is a feminist slant to the film; most of the men (including a gorgeous young Brad Pitt) are negative, emotionally and morally weak characters. The two main character's development is fascinating; Thelma loses her naivety and Louise learns to accept help. Thelma and Louise, despite their increasingly bad behaviour, remain strong, good characters, elicitng support and affection from the audience.
The film's ending is legendary. It immortalises these two characters and their plight, it is incredibly tragic and after watching this film for the first time, I cried for a good half an hour afterwards because it was just so sad. Yet there is also something positive and life-affirming in the women's retention of their freedom and cementing of their friendship.
Thelma and Louise is now a cult film. The acting is honest and impressive. The landscape is beautiful and the music enhances the film's atmosphere. The Oscar winning screenplay is incredible, and Ridley Scott's direction complements it perfectly. The DVD extras include audio commentaries by the director, writer and stars; the alternate endings provide a different perspective of the famous climax. There are a wealth of extras on this DVD, but they are by no means the selling point of the movie: it stands alone as a cult classic; "provocative, poignant and a triumph of moviemaking" could not be more true!
