September 7, 2011
Right from its gratuitously gorgeous opening shot-a beckoning panorama of red-rock mesas Thelma & Louis lets you know that it's going to be well, bigger than just another road movie.

An exciting slice of action cinema, a poignant drama, a snarky southern-fried comedy and a knockout road picture.

Say what you will about Thelma & Louise (many have), but there's no doubt that it was a zeitgeist picture with a potent cultural impact. [Blu-ray]

The plot (often contrived) and the ending (contrversial for some but not for me) are secondary--what matter the most are the vibrant characters and the stellar performances of the gorgeously looking Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis.

Feminist road movie is only for the very mature.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 16, 2009
Scott has balanced action, comedy and doomy subtext to create a morally firm yet very entertaining fable that reaches out to an audience far larger than its natural feminist constituency.

one of the best buddies-on-the-run movies ever made.

Still compelling and inspiring after all these years.

May 7, 2008
The climax is truly shattering -- but a fitting end to a film that trades in intelligence as much as it does in style.
May 7, 2008
Sarandon and Davis bring a lot of unpredictable verve and nuance to their parts.
May 7, 2008
Even those who don't rally to pic's fed-up feminist outcry will take to its comedy, momentum and dazzling visuals.

Ultimately, this road movie calls on too many knee-jerk reactions: its shocking and funny scenes rely squarely on role reversals within a traditionally male genre.
May 26, 2006
Scott seems most at home when shooting the exterior scenes on the desert highways, using the area as both inviting and deadly. It's still a great film.

Ridley Scott does a pretty good job of showing how much cooler it is to be an outlaw than a waitress or a harried wife.

October 23, 2004
What sets Thelma & Louise aside from the great central tradition of the road picture is that the heroes are women this time.

August 8, 2004
Super-charged, Amazonian feminism hijacks the caper, buddy, revenge, and road trip genres. One hell of a ride.

A deep and dangerous drama about two incredibly lonely women whose dreary lives are made brighter only through their companionship and self-reliance.
