I just watched the DVD with “Thelma & Louise“. This is an excellent criminal drama.
While the movie itself is very relaxing and enjoyable to watch, it does stimulate for some thinking on the subject of equality of men and women and “head of family” issues. I do believe in the equality in the relationship. I don’t mean a blind equality. Men, from one to another, are way too different to make them equal, not to mention equality between men and women. But I think that neither of them are better. They are just different. And so they should relate, like equals but each allowed to their own differences. Repressing and framing other half will not go unnoticed and will eventually go out of control. And when it will you better be somewhere else.
Anyway, I got carried away… The film is nicely done, with a good story, acting, sound, camera work and photography. Don’t go see it just because Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, or Brad Pitt play in it – there are parts are rather small and unimportant. But go see this film because both Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis delivered excellent performance.
If you are still not convinced, I’ll tell you that this film was directed by Ridley Scott, the same guy who produced “Matchstick Men“, “Black Hawk Down“, “Hannibal“, “Gladiator“, and few episodes of “Hire” with BMW. Does that ring any bells?
8 out of 10.
