Thelma & Louise (1991) directed by Ridley Scott, starring Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Brad Pitt
Before he set out to make only ugly, tedious trash like G.I. Jane (1997), Gladiator (2000), and Black Hawk Down (2001), Ridley Scott directed at least three cinematic gems: Alien, probably the best monster movie ever; Blade Runner, one of the very best science-fiction films; and the character-driven Thelma & Louise, which leaves most road movies biting the dust. Callie Khouri’s perceptive screenplay was a big help, but Thelma & Louise was turned into an unforgettable screen experience because of its two vibrant stars, Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis.
