Product Overview

Adrift in the Depression-era Southwest, Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker embark on a life of crime. They mean no harm. They crave adventure -- and each other. Soon we start to love them too. But nothing in film history has prepared us for the cascading violence to follow. Bonnie and Clyde turns brutal. We learn that they can be hurt -- and dread they can be killed. Bonnie and Clyde balances itself on a knife-edge of laughter and terror, thanks to vivid title-role performances by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway and superb support from Michael J. Pollard, Gene Hackman, and Estelle Parsons, who won 1967's Best Supporting Actress Academy Award. Director Arthur Penn keeps the film's sensibilities tough but never cruel. It continually dazzles, especially in the work of cinematographer Burnett Guffey (winner of the film's second Oscar) and editor Dede Allen. And as film lovers since have discovered, it's no ordinary gangster movie.

Review By today's standards, Bonnie and Clyde appears almost tame, but, upon its initial release, the level of violence was viewed as shocking...Like Birth of a Nation and Citizen Kane, this was a revolutionary motion picture -- a movie that had such a powerful impact upon audiences and filmmakers that it influenced how Hollywood approached this genre. Bonnie and Clyde has countless stepchildren -- movies like Badlands, Thelma & Louise, and Road to Perdition owe a debt to Arthur Penn's feature. If Bonnie and Clyde's overall trajectory seems familiar to modern-day audiences, that's because so many subsequent features have adopted it...Seen today, Bonnie and Clyde will only appear to be a pioneering motion picture to those who view it through lenses tinted by cinematic history. Yet, even for a viewer who is unaware of the movie's importance to the industry, it should readily be apparent that there is something special about the production, with its brash, vivid style, indelible performances by movie icons, and bold mixture of violence and comedy, romance and tragedy. Even for those without an historical perspective, Bonnie and Clyde stands apart as a great motion picture.

Review "Bonnie and Clyde" is a milestone in the history of American movies, a work of truth and brilliance. It is also pitilessly cruel, filled with sympathy, nauseating, funny, heartbreaking, and astonishingly beautiful. If it does not seem that those words should be strung together, perhaps that is because movies do not very often reflect the full range of human life...Under Arthur Penn's direction, this is a film aimed squarely and unforgivingly at the time we are living in. It is intended, horrifyingly, as entertainment. And so it will be taken. The kids on dates will go to see this one, just like they went to see "Dirty Dozen" and "Born Losers" and "Hells Angels on Wheels"...The performances throughout are flawless. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, in the title roles, surpass anything they have done on the screen before and establish themselves (somewhat to my surprise) as major actors...This is pretty clearly the best American film of the year. It is also a landmark. Years from now it is quite possible that "Bonnie and Clyde" will be seen as the definitive film of the 1960s, showing with sadness, humor and unforgiving detail what one society had come to. The fact that the story is set 35 years ago doesn't mean a thing. It had to be set sometime. But it was made now and it's about us.

Box Office Magazine ...an excellent dramatization of outlaws against society who kill and loot, partly for the thrill and partly for monetary gain.
New York Daily News Bold and brassy. Brutal and brilliant!
The Motion Picture Guide ...a landmark film that permanently established the stellar status of its stars...along with its inventive director.
Tim Dirks, The Greatest Films ...combining comedy, terror, love, and violence...this innovative, revisionist film redefined and romanticized the crime/gangster genre and screen violence forever.
VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever Highly controversial and influential...
