    One of the more iconic films of its decade, THELMA & LOUISE brought a feisty and empowering sense of fun to the table with its ever-intriguing title leads (Sarandon and Davis make for an unpredictable and complementary duo) as well as strong supporting turns. Though it is fitting for some to analyze it solely with regards to its feminist themes and characters, the film stands on its own as a road movie that employs an adventure-filled script through beautiful locations and gradually growing stakes; a worthy addition to Ridley Scott's credits despite a rather disappointing payoff and an iffy (and rather, empty) message in terms of what it all stands for.

    Wonderfully well acted and with a stunning cinematography, this delicious road movie finds an awful snowball of trouble for two unfortunate women in this sexist society - and the setting of such story in the south of the U.S. makes its feminist statement even more significant.

    A modern classic involving two women deciding to take matters into their own hands after suffering abuse. The end alone makes this one worth savouring.

    The perfect buddy-chick movie. Fantastic script that gives depth to all the characters, gives great use of dark humour to the unfortunate missunderstandings (and poor decisions) these humane characters are put through and never forgets the motives and problems of the leads in favour of cheap sentimentalism. Boosted by stellar performances from Sarandon and Davis, the movie quickly goes into unforgettable territory right from the start. Also, a surprisingly constrained direction by Scott gives room for the more important aspects of the film, which was a very smart decision, but there's still classic Ridley trademarks all over: indoor lighting, outstanding and exciting set pieces and a great american road movie feeling thanks to impressive set locations without being too huge and distracting. A nearly flawless humanistic movie that'll make you laugh, cry and root right from the start from these charismatic outlaws.
