Movie Reviews:

  • Wuchak: ***Entertaining but tragic road flick with Sarandon and Davis***

    Two women from Arkansas (Susan Sarandon & Geena Davis) become fugitives and travel through the Southwest pursued by authorities (Harvey Keitel & Stephen Tobolowsky). Brad Pitt plays a cowboy drifter while Michael Madsen and Christopher McDonald are on hand as the beau and hubby of the women.

    “Thelma & Louise” (1991) is an iconic crime drama/road movie spiced with a few thrills. It’s entertaining, but not really empowering for females, unless making rash, stupid decisions and ruining your life is empowering. It’s amusing, dramatic and scenic, yet ultimately tragic.

    Sarandon was 41 during shooting while Davis was ten years younger. Both look great, but their characters are a bit of a turn-off during the opening reel, especially the ditzy Thelma (Davis), yet they win sympathy as the movie progresses.

    The film runs 2 hours, 10 minutes, and was shot in Southern Cal and Utah, as well as Bedrock, Colorado.

    GRADE: B
