Bonnie and Clyde (BD Book)
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.

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.Read more ›
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.
