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…
Bonnie and Clyde is a red-blooded masterwork. It is the epitome of high-class American cinema, where excess is fine art and absurdity is brilliant poetry. A high-octane attack on high-brow posturing, Bonnie and Clyde is a genuine work of art. It has served as the demented template for all future lovers on the lam stories. It is outrageously pleasurable and super violent, with an inspired sense of gory extravagance depicted in a lovingly unapologetic bias. Bonnie and Clyde is perfect filmmaking at its most meaningful and merry.
Bonnie and Clyde is a hypersexual treatise on young love and juvenile fantasy. It is wild, dangerous, and horny. Bonnie and Clyde is also a disturbed film with an emphasis on repressed and…
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…
this movie was fun to watch the character of Clyde had many defaults making him interesting to watch. Bonnie and Blanche were also very comical throughout the movie.
You've read the story of Jesse James
Of how he lived and died;
If you're still in need
Of something to read,
Here's the story of Bonnie and Clyde.
Now Bonnie and Clyde are the Barrow gang,
I'm sure you all have read
How they rob and steal
And those who squeal
Are usually found dying or dead.
There's lots of untruths to these write-ups;
They're not so ruthless as that;
Their nature is raw;
They hate all the law
The stool pigeons, spotters, and rats.
They call them cold-blooded killers;
They say they are heartless and mean;
But I say this with pride,
That I once knew Clyde
When he was honest and upright and clean.
But the laws…
Why wouldn't Faye dye her hair for this role? Wtf Faye?
One of the best films ever made, and one of my most favorite films of all time. A re-watch.
In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the French New Wave was busy redefining cinema throughout Western Europe. Maybe not as much in terms of structure of films as much as a general feeling of the films, a certain tone and atmosphere that epitomized the Nouvelle Vogue films and set them apart from others. By the mid sixties though, the foremost authorities of the movement had either moved into further experimentation of cinema (Godard and Rivette), more popularized fare (Truffaut and to a lesser extent Chabrol) or more classical tones of cinema (Rohmer).
Thus it can be argued that one of the last films that really felt like a New Wave film of old was actually the American film, Bonnie…
I'm very happy this film still rules.
I think this movie was great to get a more in depth look of what the lives of Bonnie and Clyde were like. The true reality of their life of crime and when they weren't in the moment of committing a crime.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
