Watching a movie for the first time while already knowing the ending can sometimes create for a taxing experience, but in this case, knowing the ending helps you feel the descent of Thelma (Geena Davis) and Louise (Susan Sarandon) more strongly, and because Davis and Sarandon are so good in their roles and because the hardships their characters go through are so terrible, you continuously root for them, and even applaud them during this final tragic scene.
"For the first time in his life, Grenouille realized that he had no smell of his own. He realized that all his life he had been a nobody to everyone. What he now felt was the fear of his own oblivion. It was a though he did not exist." (requested by shallicomparetheetolagrenouille)
