A buddy-movie for ladies,
As these two every-women, hit the road,
Just looking to unwind, from their daily grind,
Until some more serious circumstances unfold.
Director Scott leans heavily on Americana,
with a flurry of blue-collar honky-tonks and country kitsch,
The open road and wide expanses of the West,
Pair perfectly as these two, wild women get their kicks.
Thelma and Louise is a small script made monumental,
by heavy hitters Sarandon, Davis and Scott.
Like a pop-song that hits all right notes,
You want to 'just keep going' until you drop!
With big name stars and prime spot on HBO,
This film might appear, as a hidden gem,
And after watching it, I can now stay,
How can I get 1.5 hours, of life back again?
Ok - basically a kid has special powers,
and two guys are driving him around for protection,
But they forgot to say, where they are going,
What are his powers, and why any of this deserves our attention.
A plot missing acts, setup or even basic points,
this movie encourages little reflection
(Meh) night special, or Midnight (Not So) Special,
Widely misses the mark, whatever its intention.
Patience is a virtue, in this sea,
For the plot to unfold, takes an eternity.
Under duress, Arthur (Matthew McConaughey), boards a plane to Japan
And soon finds himself, helping an injured man.
But in this forest, nothing is as it seems,
Darkness and confusion, dovetail with dreams.
Why is he there? And who is this other man?
It is your task (poor viewer), to try to understand.
Van Sant takes a chance, but the pace is chore,
A lot of of very little, - I’m guessing less is more?
But it just might leave you thinking, as timelines collide,
When the movie neatly wraps up, with an a-ha moment on the side.
