Bonnie and Clyde
They’re young… they’re in love… and they kill people.
Bonnie and Clyde is based on the true stories of the gangster pair Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow who in the 1930s began robbing banks in U.S. cities until they were eventually killed. The film is a major landmark in the aesthetic movement known as the New Hollywood.
Noir-November Challenge! Movie #31
Based loosely on the real life gangsters Bonnie and Clyde!
Sultry Faye Dunaway lights up the screen with her larger than life rendition of the character Bonnie Parker! Her animal magnetism cannot be contained within the big screen any more than you can keep the dough inside the Pillsbury container once you cracked it and the dough burst through the seam! The intimate close up shots of this vivacious beauty were pure eye candy!
Warren Beatty effervescent rendition of Clyde Barrow was equally amazing! Together they were hands down one of the most charismatic and tragedy bound anti hero couples ever to grace the big screen!
Stellar performances by fellow co-stars Michael J. Pollard, Gene Hackman,…
Based on the true stories surrounding the famous gangster pair, Bonnie and Clyde tells the story of a young couple who began robbing little stores and eventually banks during the times of the Great Depression, with the help of C.W. Moss and Clyde's brother Buck and his wife Blanche, forming the 'mediatic' Barrow Gang.
Taking into account that Arthur Penn's story keeps a very regular tone and hardly progresses until the powerful finale - 'all we see' is a couple (and their gang) robbing banks during a couple of hours in order to escape from their boring lives - what makes his film so special and so remarkable? Historical importance aside, Bonnie and Clyde is a very charming and incomparably…
They say pictures don't lie, but the truth is they can lie as bad as anybody, including Clyde Barrow, who seduces Bonnie Parker with the promise of an exciting life full of sex, wealth, and danger (I guess 1 out of 3 ain't bad). That theme of unfulfilled promise runs deep - take a look at the hilarious sequence with Gene Wilder's Eugene and his girlfriend temporarily taking up with the gang, and the way it ends on a grim anti-punchline that only Bonnie, cursed by foresight, really understands.
The movie's commercial and generic promises ultimately DO get filled, though, with plenty of violent shootouts and chases, including the final one that gives the audience more than they could ever…
Wow. What a perfect opening sequence. Faye Dunaway sells her character in the first three minutes before even uttering a single line of dialogue.
Actually, the times when this film is at its strongest are the times when nobody says anything. The awkward love making sequence. ("I told you I'm not a lover boy.") C.W. at the wheel, the pair of injured lovers sleeping in the back seat. Mostly, Bonnie's quiet moments of discomfort and seething anger. She is the most interesting character in the film. Dare I say it, the film is more about Bonnie than it is about Bonnie and Clyde.
So many interesting characters walk in and out. At its peak, the Barrow Gang is seven people…
How can you not have a good time watching such an attractive couple doing such terrible dastardly things? The media attention they receive, on top of it, makes it so damn appealing, with the film recognizing that through the many characters picked up along the way. Combining it's forward sexuality with the unprecedented realism in violence at the time makes for quite the memorable experience.
The film's titular characters, Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) and Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway), meet when Clyde attempts to steal Bonnie's mother's car. Clyde then persuades her to partner up with him in crime, suggestively having her touch his gun. He offers a lavish lifestyle and a way out of her mundane life working as a…
A defining piece of New Hollywood cinema where thirties, depression-era America is filtered through sixties sensibility. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway adopt their lead roles expertly and strike a perfect balance between giddy romance and shocking anti-heroics. Through daring innovation, a bold depiction of violence and an iconic finale, Arthur Penn's landmark film changed the face of cinema, inspired a generation of filmmakers and remains powerful today, only three years shy of its fiftieth anniversary.
Un clásico atemporal que seguirá perdurando en el ideario colectivo como una de las mejores películas de la historia. La historia de Bonnie Parker y Clyde Barrow nunca se contó tan bien y es por eso que esta película con uno de los mejores finales de la historia del cine, es un visionado obligado para cualquier amante del cine clásico, desprendiendo un frescor y un ritmo que permanece intacto 47 años después. Una maravilla del cine de acción.
Rewriting the cinematic rulebook in terms of sex, love, violence and crime, but of equal historical importance due to its fascinating characters and captivating story, Bonnie and Clyde is a film that has inspired many imitators but has truly no equal.
After watching Life Itself, I finally felt the urge to unwrap this blu-ray and give it a watch - and it did not disappoint... Overall, the 1960s are shaping up to being one of my favorite film decades.
A solid story about the life and death of two iconic American bank robbers. There's a lot of interesting insight into this little family who show mercy to most people and oddly follow a moral compass to some degree while robbing banks and killing people. These are two criminals that are very easy to root for.
Shot well, acted well, and well structured.
Truthfully, there isn't anything specifically terrible about Bonnie and Clyde, it's just a movie that never sucked me in past a surface entertainment level. Good performances, a well known story and well shot action all make it worth a watch, but it's never something I need to see a second time if i'm being totally honest. What is it people seem to love about this movie so much?
Praticamente cada sequência um episódio.
AHHHHH I'm in awe of how much I loved this movie. I don't even know where to start, it is a great (damn-near perfect ((among a first watch, even))) film.
Fantastically charming performances by the two leads. Good plot, but other than that there's not much more to it. It's good, but 5 star good? Come on.
We can bang on all day about how this film changed cinema and provided inspiration for many, but.......I dunno......maybe this is one of those ones you're SUPPOSED to think is totes amazeballs.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
