    Bonnie & Clyde starts with a nude woman (technically) and ends with a shoot-out that violently and relentlessly riddles two people with bullets. In 1967, that must have been a game changer for American cinema. So I completely accept its place in movie history, and can definitely see how it made Faye Dunaway a star. She's electric and more than a match for Warren Beatty's charming bank robber. But the buck stops there (sorry about the pun, which you'll get if you've seen it). In a film where the point of view is squarely with the bank robbers, or indeed, is born and dies with their relationship, I would have expected more insight. As is, these guys are criminals because 1) the Depression means money is scarce and banks are evil anyway and 2) they were bored. Once Bonnie and Clyde are in a relationship, or once someone has joined the gang, the motivations are understandable through the acting if nothing else, but it's those points of intersection, when someone actively makes the choice to become a criminal, that glossed over and feel completely unjustified. The film is the poorer for it, and the criminal escapades eventually become tedious. 1 year 6 months ago

    The movie that marked the silver age of Hollywood, the one that changed the face of cinema. A film that inspired filmmakers like Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Quentin Tarantino. 7 years 8 months ago

    The first half of this film plays out in a carefree vigorous youthful spirit, not unlike its protagonists. It is not until its final half hour that "Bonnie and Clyde" begins to put words to its message. Clyde Parker's slow-descent into madness and Bonnie Parker's reluctance to leave him despite herself, redeems this film's final half and gives meaning to its first. 7 years 10 months ago
