Bonnie and Clyde

"this fast-paced thriller revolutionised American cinema"

"Not as violent as it's reputed to be, except at the end, of course"

"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.

Review

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.
