An enduring classic radically redefining women in movies - or at least some of them. And should finally put to rest the intended ending as not self-obliteration, but a burst of magical realism in flight 'out of this world and into the mass unconscious.'
The feminist justification that the script provides for the heroines' behavior doesn't make their actions any less preposterous. But you can recognize the crudeness of the movie's narrative devices and still have an awfully good time.
Thelma & Louise encounter representatives of different types of maleness from barroom skirt chaser and leering truck driver to the swaggering young hustler (a star-is-born Brad Pitt) who delivers Thelma's sexual awakening and steals the pair's cash.
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.
