Film Series: Thelma and Louise

1991. USA. Dir: Ridley Scott. With Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis. 130 min.

A duo of kickass women murder an unapologetic rapist, jump-starting a cross-country run from the law in which they smash the patriarchy at every pit stop. Monumental in its radical femininity, the film continually exalts its protagonists’ righteous fury and even turns an objectifying gaze on a gloriously shirtless Brad Pitt. Speaker: author Becky Aikman.

Film Series: Blade Runner (The Final Cut)

1982. USA. Dir: Ridley Scott. With Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer. 117 min.

A hard-boiled cop tasked with tracking down and terminating “replicants” – androids engineered to look exactly like humans – grapples with moral quandaries and the nature of self in dim, dystopian L.A. The eerily slow-burning neo-noir has been hailed as a sci-fi paragon for its ornate, imaginative production design and complex philosophical themes.
