The story of Bonnie and Clyde has always interested me because it is about two of the most wanted outlaws in history. This movie not only showed what it looked like to be a wanted outlaw in the early 1900's, it showed what Bonnie and Clydes relationship might've been like when they weren't robbing banks. Another reason I liked this film was that it went against the Hays Code and proved the code had to end. I also like how fast paced this film was and there wasn't much down time. This film was ahead of it's time and is a very important film that helped change film forever.
