Bonnie is fascinated with Clyde's criminal past, and his matter-of-factness and bravado in talking about it. Clyde sees in Bonnie someone sympatico to his goals in life. Although attracted to each other physically, a sexual relationship between the two has a few obstacles to happen. Regardless, they decide to join forces to embark on a life of crime, holding up whatever establishments, primarily banks, to make money and to have fun. They don't plan on hurting anyone physically or killing anyone despite wielding loaded guns. They amass a small gang of willing accomplices, including C.W. Moss, a mechanic to fix whatever cars they steal which is important especially for their getaways, and Buck Barrow, one of Clyde's older brothers. The only reluctant tag-along is Buck's ...

Bank robbers during Great Depression well played by Beatty and Dunaway
31 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

The picture tells the lurid criminal story of a famous delinquents couple, detailing a mythologized biography. In the time of the Great Depression, Clyde Barrow(top notch Warren Beatty) recently out of jail knows to Bonnie Parker(gorgeous Faye Dunaway), both become bank robbers. The antiheroes go across the American Midwest and South robbing banks and stores during the 20s, embarking in a criminal rampage. They form a criminal gang, united with accomplices as Cyde's brother named Buck(incomparable Gene Hackman) and his spouse(Estelle Parsons was Oscar winner), besides an unexperienced young(unforgettable Michael J Pollard). But they're pursued by a revenger sheriff(Denver Pyle).

This classic movie displays drama, love, noisy action, violence and is quite entertaining. In spite of thirty years from film-making still hold well and remains interesting. In the wake of the recently released Sam Peckinpah's Wild Bunch, the movie is plenty of grisly violence with a violent ending was deeply polemic. Colorful and glittering cinematography by Burnett Guffey was Oscar winner, and atmospheric musical score by Charles Strouse. Excellent art direction by Dean Tavoularis and evocative costumes by Theodora Van Runkle. The motion picture is magnificently directed by Arthur Penn. The picture spawned pretty imitators, and created a sub-genre about Great Depression outlaws, such as Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, Machine Gun Kelly, among others. Another updating about Clyde Borrow and Charlie Parker existence are : ¨Bonnie Parker story¨(1958) by William Witney with Dorothy Provine and a rendition for TV(1992) by Gary Hoffman with Tracy Needham and Dana Ashbrook.
