"Beatty and Dunaway have never been better"
Bonnie and Clyde
with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway
The violent story of America's most feared bank
robbers during the 1930s. Bonnie and Clyde and their gang were responsible
for the deaths of eighteen people before they were finally caught.
One of the landmark movies of the 1960s, Bonnie and
Clyde changed the course of American cinema. Setting a milestone for
screen violence that paved the way for Sam Peckinpah's The Wild
Bunch, this exercise in mythologized biography should not be labelled
as a bloodbath; as critic Pauline Kael wrote in her rave review, "it's the
absence of sadism that throws the audience off balance". The film is more
of a poetic ode to the Great Depression, starring the dream team of Warren
Beatty and Faye Dunaway as the titular antiheroes, who barrel across the
South and Midwest robbing banks with Clyde's brother Buck (Gene Hackman),
Buck's frantic wife Blanche (Estelle Parsons) and their faithful
accomplice C W Moss (the inimitable Michael J. Pollard). Bonnie and
Clyde is an unforgettable classic that has lost none of its power
since the 1967 release.
