Description

Amazon.co.uk Review One of the landmark films 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. --Jeff Shannon Product Description Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway star in Arthur Penn's lauded crime drama based on the true story of outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. In the 1930s, car thief Clyde (Beatty) teams up with Bonnie (Dunaway), the daughter of one of his victims, and together they become notorious bank robbers and Depression-era folk legends. They form a gang with Clyde's brother, Buck (Gene Hackman), Buck's wife, Blanche (Estelle Parsons), and gas station employee C.W. (Michael J. Pollard). When one of their robberies goes wrong, Clyde commits a murder and, with the police hot on their trail, the gangsters find themselves constantly on the run. The film received ten Oscar nominations, winning awards for Best Cinematography and Best Supporting Actress for Parsons.
