Product Description

Bonnie and Clyde (BD Book)

Amazon.ca

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 labeled 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I wouldn't say Bonnie & Clyde started off as 'criminals'. Just very bored teenagers looking for success and riches. And being aware of their shortcomings and unfulfilling surroundings. Clyde certainly was the fuel, wanting to go anywhere and do anything. And Bonnie was certainly the match, nearly burned to it's end and wanting to light anything on fire to bring some light into her life. The two were perfect for each other, and yet as tragic as Adam & Eve. And the gang formed with C.W. Moss, Buck Barrow (Clyde's older brother, brilliantly played by Gene Hackman) and Buck's wife, there's a true sense of 'family' for a moment. Fear and support, anger and care. I would have to say this may have been the first movie to make 'The Laws' (As Clyde referred to the police as) the real bad guys. Especially a Texas Ranger that was humiliated by Bonnie & Clyde in a picture taken, and then sent out handcuffed and a drift in a row boat on a lake. For the violence that amplified with the Barrow gang, the authorities seemed to get ten times worse. So I can see the allure of this film among 'hippies' and war protesters of the time. And to this day, with kids looking for 'street cred' and 'invincible life, love, and adventure'. The set is very attractive, with the movie and trailers on 'Clydes disc' and extras and interviews on 'Bonnies Disc'. Don't expect to get the in depth history of the REAL Bonnie & Clyde, though there is a documentary of them included in the extras. The bonuses are pretty well concerned with the movie, giving a extensive little 'Press Book' of all the marketing and posters for the movie, along with a nice small 'Photo Book' with great stills from and around the movie. If anything this movie totally glorified was 'style'. The authentic fashion, the cars, the towns.Read more ›

I wasn't really expecting to like this film, but it has become one of my favourites. The interplay between Beatty and Dunaway is fantastic, Dunaway leaves a lasting impression. It keeps you hooked from the start, and the way it is filmed it is clear how French cinema of the sixties had a big influence. The bonus DVD is not bad, though like most bonus DVDs could always be better. If you collect classic cinema then this has to be in it.

To me, the best film of 1967 (above the other landmark film of that year, The Graduate), and one of the most startling films ever made. I think that the "modern era" of moviemaking begins with Bonnie and Clyde." It's really about a "family" of bankrobbers who owe much of their success to the press; the newspapers make it seem as if they intend to terrorize every small town that has a bank to begin with. And so the Barrow gang becomes legendary during the depression, and heroes to some because they are against the government that is taking so much away from the "little people." Although much praised, "Bonnie and Clyde" was controversial in its day, partly because of the considerable bloodshed and partly because audiences felt bad for the two criminals. As one character says, "they're just a bunch of kids!" This is one of the rare films in which the violence punctuates the story--it makes the viewing experience more powerful. Because of it, one watches much of the film in a state of apprehension.

Trust Hollywood to turn two common criminals into two American folk heroes. Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker were two small-town young people drifting aimlessly during the Great Depression of the 1930's; she's bored out of her gourd, and he's a felon who had killed fourteen men by the time he met his end at the ripe old age of twenty-four. They meet, fall sort of in love, and embark on a petty crime spree. At first it's all good-humored fun; they steal a couple of cars, hold up a couple of stores, and in a moment of hilarious insanity, Clyde attempts to rob a bank that went bust a week before, much to the amusement of the banker and Bonnie, who's collapsing with laughter over the steering wheel. But then a storekeeper takes offense at Clyde attempting to hold him up, and is pistol-whipped by Clyde in his frantic efforts to escape. Once the batterer storekeeper ID's Clyde's photo to the cops, things turn serious.
As Clyde's posse expands to include a lowlife neer-do-well named C.W. Moss and Clyde's brother Buck and his sister-in-law Blanche, their crimes get bolder and the violence spirals out of control. A bank robbery in broad daylight (while C.W. manages to get their getaway far stuck in a too-tight parking space) goes off almost without a hitch; but when Clyde shoots a pursuing cop in the face and his head explodes all over their back windshield, the fun stuff is over. They're wanted criminals being chased from Arkansas to Oklahoma and back to Louisiana. As their notoriety spreads, so does their audacity. In one of the funniest scenes in the film, they capture a sheriff who was about to sneak up on them and handcuff him while Clyde snaps pictures of Bonnie holding a gun on him. But their fame comes at a terrible price; they're wanted outcasts, alienated even from their own.

Bonnie and Clyde changed the course of American filmmaking; I often compare it in my mind to Thelma and Louise - you can look at both of those films as milestones and sort of chart your life around them: before Bonnie and Clyde, after Thelma and Louise...
Such violence and bloodletting hadn't been seen on screen before, but there was art behind it, not mindless gore. A film classic as soon as it was released, the movie takes place during the Great Depression with the impossibly young Faye Dunnaway as Bonnie and Warren Beatty as Clyde (handsome, swashbuckling, ? impotent), the brains behind the gang. Also along for the ride, so to speak, are Gene Hackman as Clyde's brother, his wife Blanche (played by Estelle Parsons) who is skittish as a squirrel on a freeway and really should have stayed home baking rhubarb crisp, and, best of all, almost stealing every scene in which he appears, Michael J. Pollard as CW Moss.
If by some chance you haven't seen it before, see it now. If you've already seen it, even if you've seen it several times, see it again. It doesn't get stale.
