Bonnie And Clyde Movie Review

Faye Dunaway has never looked better than when she wore a hat titled to one side and aimed a gun right at the camera for the poster shot of Bonnie and Clyde. This watershed film from Arthur Penn tells the dreamlike, obviously fictionalized tale of infamous bank robbers Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) and Bonnie Parker (Dunaway), who plied their trade in the south during the Great Depression. Their famous bullet-ridden end is one of cinema's most famous shootouts. Less has been said (though it should) for Bonnie's expertly written dialogue and impressive performances all around. You'll never root for the bad guys more than you will here.
