CHOICE Review

In analyzing Ridley Scott's Thelma & Louise (1991), Cook leans to the popular side, offering commentaries from US News & World Report (an attack on the film) and Time (a cover story by Richard Schickel and a piece by Margaret Carlson). The remaining pieces include Cook's essay on seeing film in new ways and essays on comedy theory, acting as a cinematic discourse, sound and music, a comparison to Bonnie and Clyde (1967), the formation of Brad Pitt's star image, and an interview with the film's screenwriter, Callie Khouri, who won her first Oscar for it. He specifically does not include, but mentions in his introduction, pieces published in Film Quarterly and Cineaste, a BFI monograph, a 1999 piece by Brenda Cooper on gendered reception of the film (published in Critical Studies in Mass Communication), or Tiina Vares' study of women's reception of the film in Feminist Media Studies. Why? Thelma & Louise shows women responding to verbal and physical assault with the same violence that some men show. As John Wayne's gunfighter character in The Shootist (1976) said, he did not insult others or "lay hands on" them, and he would not permit others to do that to him. The book includes filmographies of Scott and Khouri. Summing Up: Recommended. Large collections; all levels. R. Blackwood emeritus, City Colleges of Chicago
