July 5, 2013 - Boston.com - Peter Keough, Globe Correspondent

More than 20 years after Thelma and Louise took a flying leap into the Grand Canyon, road conditions have not improved much for women travelling unescorted in the US. Such is the conclusion of French-Algerian filmmaker Rachid Bouchareb’s first English-language film, “Just Like a Woman,” in which a pair of female fugitives quit their bellyaching for belly-dancing as they travel from Chicago to Santa Fe, performing at roadhouses along the way.
What might have proven an illuminating perspective on familiar issues disappoints as Bouchareb fails to turn his outsider’s point of view into new insights, and instead takes the easy route, falling back on familiar stereotypes in his tour of US misogyny and xenophobia.
