Bonnie and Clyde

  • Dir: Arthur Penn

  • USA, 1967, 111minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Gene Hackman

The real-life story of two nobodies robbing the banks and killing people during the bleak Depression days is elevated into firstclass sensation, with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway stepping into their shoes. Taking up this biopic of Bonnie and Clyde, Arthur Penn aimed it – unforgivingly at the enormous change of the 60s. Pitilessly cruel yet filled with sympathy and astonishing beauty, this groundbreaking masterpiece received 10 Oscar nominations as well as harsh criticisms. Indebted to the French New Wave, the championing of anti-hero, the free-spirited cinematography and the painfully-rendered violence have revolutionized the Hollywood landscape. Rightfully deserved a place in American film history.
