We’re continuing our Oscars ‘91 series with a groundbreaking major studio movie in its willingness to put women front and center as our heroines. Although, these two aren’t the perfect protagonists by any measure, but they are truly compelling. And while the film is rightly remembered as a classic, it’s not without its faults. There’s a lot of the movie that focuses away from what makes it so great, either out of messy writing or frustrating directing. Still, anytime you can put Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis in a car in the southwest, it’s worth the price of admission. Hit the pedal all the way down as we discuss Thelma & Louise on Macintosh & Maud Haven’t Seen What?!
