Thelma and Louise

Thelma and Louise: Latest News about Thelma and Louise, Viewed 20 years after the fact, Thelma and Louise seems both more and less radical than when first released. Cataloged for the last two decades the quintessential feminist film ever released in Hollywood (a title virtually unchallenged by a film released in the meantime), Thelma was released at a time when heroines began to seem not only viable but also good business practice to bring a female audience feeling disenfranchised by the overabundance of muscular actioners that seemed to dominate the box office, largely stonewalled the press aimed at women. In comparison with the heroines of today, Thelma and Louise still seem vital, and the film is actually done as a starting theme for Ridley Scott, but the iconic badge he wore for so long seems less due to statements made by the filmmakers as a profound answer them simply a cultural segment which so little was offered. Bored waitress Louise (Susan Sarandon) and bored housewife Thelma (Geena Davis) have had enough. Bored with their jobs, tired of their aging, inadequate and bored men in their lives. But instead of jumping directly into a shooting in the southwest, they preface with a brief vacation in the context of girls weekend away. Things start well past, but once that Thelma was released in a parking lot by a stranger (who intends to rape her), and the ensuing confrontation ends with Louise to shoot him, they are on the run from the law. Extent of repression pursued by Officer Hal (Harvey Keitel) and supported by lively drifter JD (Brad Pitt), the two women first tried to put their lives together, but increasingly find that they do not want to go back to they had, and instead want to keep pushing the boundaries, wherever it may lead. Released five years after the foreigners and the same year as The Silence of the Lambs, Thelma and Louise became the signature film for a resurgent feminism that has long wandered in the desert. Rather than using history as a spokesman for explicitly political themes, these films put women in roles previously occupied by single men and examined the growing pains resulting from the change. If a more complete story of the film at the time would be needed to fully appreciate the social significance of Thelma (or whether it was really a profound statement or just the right place at the right time), the distance a reconciliation shall be made based on this who came immediately before and during the many years since its implementation. Which is certainly not unique in Thelma posture gun nor anti-rants his men, but the fact that the resolution is two characters find each other rather than be in a bloody act of suspicion or recognition of sad defeat. justly famous conclusion of the film (actually, always the gutsiest creative decision by the filmmakers), in which the two women decide to escape their lives rather than accept that the rest of them would be under subjagation , is not a political statement as well as a fulfillment of the promise of friendship, and that no one, whether fair or not, would be able to stay away. Basically a blow as Thelma was, it seems to have spawned imitators relatively little. The field of heroes has expanded considerably, opening the door for the likes of Buffy, the bride, and even Xena, but moved into the same kind of trends that Thelma sought to reverse. The representation of women in films since quite clearly divided into two categories: hypersexualized, depersonalized action hero (for men) and fickle emotional charge (supposedly for women). Thelma and Louise are not. Instead, they are adults who are committed to each other, but nevertheless find themselves in a situation beyond their control. In comparison with their history gn-toting, Thelma and Louise seem much more vulnerable and subject to the forces at work around them, but also more humane. Faced with the anger that came after them, Thelma and Louise did look pretty grown. They do not like their violence, and they never act unless provoked. But since their motivations are always clear and their reactions are always real, they never come off the projections of fantasy empowerment, but as people who responded in kind in the world around them. Thelma and Louise would have paved the way for a revolution in Hollywood, but also is an unfinished revolution, and perhaps abandoned.Thelma and Louise
