Quotes:
Clyde Barrow:Alright. Alright. If all you want's a stud service, you get on back to West Dallas and you stay there the rest of your life. You're worth more than that. A lot more than that. You know it and that's why you come along with me. You could find a lover boy on every damn corner in town. It don't make a damn to them whether you're waitin' on tables or pickin' cotton, but it does make a damn to me.
Bonnie Parker:Why?
Clyde Barrow:Why? What's you mean, "Why?" Because you're different, that's why. You know, you're like me. You want different things. You got somethin' better than bein' a waitress. You and me travelin' together, we could cut a path clean across this state and Kansas and Missouri and Oklahoma and everybody'd know about it. You listen to me, Miss Bonnie Parker. You listen to me.

Any Subject Whatsoever!, 11 April 2011
Author: dataconflossmoor-1 from United States

The year was 1967, a groundbreaking year for movies, the Academy Award nominees were: "The Graduate" "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner", "In The Heat Of The Night" "Dr Doolittle" and, last, but certainly not least, "Bonnie and Clyde". All of these films have received the highest form of critical acclaim from one movie critic or another, hence, 1967 became a revolutionary year for film making. Focusing on the movie "Bonnie and Clyde", AFI (American Film Institute) rates "Bonnie and Clyde" the 27th best picture out of the top 100 American films ever made. I wholeheartedly concur with this assessment, yet, others may not, and, here is where a great deal of the movie audience members are seemingly missing the boat. When mentioning to people that "Bonnie and Clyde" is one of the best films to ever be produced, many moviegoers will get very disparaging and say: "I don't like gangster films, a movie like that is probably very good, but, a glorified cops and robbers flick could not possibly be one of the best movies ever made"... This is a preconceived notion which is totally erroneous! While many hoodlum bank heist movies are filled with turgid rhetoric, and evoke a sort of sinister adolescent mindset, "Bonnie and Clyde" assertively differentiates itself from the run of the mill. Brilliant acting, directing, and the sophisticated concept of colorfully accurate costuming, establishes "Bonnie and Clyde" as a stellar production in the Hollywood paradigm for films. It is true that many genres run a higher risk of being easily categorized as "stilted" more than others, and, gangster flicks are indeed, films which frequently fall into that classification. In the case of "Bonnie and Clyde", however, labeling it just another flashy and overbearing gangster movie would be an egregious miscarriage of justice.!! The picture "Bonnie and Clyde" establishes a set of vitriolic circumstances which create a vivid aura of insurrection from the anti-establishment. This was a technique that became the most effective form of entertainment to mesmerize the movie audience!! As a result, "Bonnie and Clyde" initiated a cinematic precedent by advocating the proverbial dark horse philosophy which other movies followed suit on back in the late sixties! Such a high profile presentation of early twentieth century bank robbing chicanery establishes a bevy of hard bitten accuracy through depraved channels of belligerence and rudimentary lust! Subsequently, this film became an acrimonious portrayal of the cause and effect traumas of the Great Depression! This major motion picture purports an authenticity to the aggregate rancor which prevailed between dangerous gangsters, and the officials working for the law during the late 1920's and early 1930's. The hostile fragility contained in the conversations with everyone signified a defensive reflex that criminals like Bonnie and Clyde harbored to vindicate their heinous acts of violence and robbery. This was one of the first films to depict the disconcerting scenario where the good guys and the bad guys are not sequestered by ethical polarization. The Great Depression demoralized virtually all U.S. citizens in one way or another! Invariably, poverty becomes the culprit to adversity, adversity brings about illicit behavior, and bandits such as Bonnie and Clyde are by products of this entire dilemma. Capital crimes served a purpose to flaunt a formidable individuality and acknowledgment for the nefarious perpetrators involved. While "Bonnie and Clyde" did not win for best picture in 1967, (That award was given to "In The Heat of the Night") "Bonnie and Clyde" had an irrevocable impact on the cinema world back in 1967. This is mostly on account of the fact that "Bonnie and Clyde" exuded an intensely haunting realism through the implementation of an absolutely fascinating and acutely glamorous dynamic. The acting was so incredible in this movie: It comprises of: Warren Beaty ( Actor, director, writer, producer, and, oh yeah!! Ladies Man!!). Faye Dunaway (World renown actress, particularly for her roles in "Chinatown" and "Network"). Gene Hackman, (Basically the best in the business; Famous for "French Connection" and "The Conversation" to name a couple). Gene Wilder, (Hysterically funny! and, star of "Young Frankenstein").In addition, this movie contained a host of other great performers, including Estelle Parsons, Parsons won the Oscar for best supporting actress with this role. The timing to the volatility, the emotions, and the archaic introductory harbinger to realistic violence in "Bonnie and Clyde" are sensational! "Bonnie and Clyde" is a cunningly successful masterpiece in the Hollywood repertoire of major motion pictures. The cinematography, and the camera angles to the movie "Bonnie and Clyde" manufactured a cannon of creativity which made this movie production truly innovative! Director, Arthur Penn, ascertains a succinct articulation of the pejorative human element with this film. This enables the movie audience to garner a precarious camaraderie with the dubious plight of wanted criminals. The invidious disposition to this movie's desultorily criminal Depression laden era formats a situation whereby the purveyors of societal injustice are cavorting around on both sides of the law! Whether a movie is about elusive New Yorkers, space time continua, or visceral bank robbing thugs during the Depression, the key to making a remarkable movie is predicated on the superb manner in which the movie is produced! Essentially, a film is judged by how it is auspiciously consummated from head to toe! With the coveted accolade of being up for nine Academy Award nominations back in 1967, "Bonnie and Clyde" should be commended as being one of the greatest American films ever made!! ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR!!
