Working within the boundaries of many diverse popular genres, Scott has infused his works with new energy through both a strong formal sense and a cohesive world view. In such films as Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise, and the recent blockbuster Gladiator, Scott addresses the tensions between institutions and individuals, passion and reason, and social order and personal freedom - particularly for women, who in Scott's films often posses strong characters, moral rectitude, and physical prowess - making him the rare mainstream director who does not reserve such heroic qualities for men only."."
