I'm assuming they were attempting to highlight the surprising normality of the couple's life on the run, but I agree that it arguably needed less Thelma & Louise and more on the country's reaction, given that was the slant they were shooting for. I still think it's not bad at all for a first shot.I'm afraid I ended up really disliking this, despite the strong start (I also really enjoyed Bokeem Woodbine's segments; he was hilarious). The second half though I found mean spirited and distasteful, especially the sex scene which is probably the least sexy in cinematic history. From the cartoonishly evil and racist cop, to the adversarial undertones of the later acts, I felt it it went too far off the rails into victimhood porn. Also, given that these two are supposed to be the new Bonnie & Clyde, they dont actually seem to do anything throughout the movie.
