Goofs

When Maney turns the car radio on, it starts playing immediately. In the 1930s, radios used vacuum tubes, which must warm up for a few seconds before they will function; hence, the sound would not start instantaneously. See more »

We all saw the movie Bonnie and Clyde (Arthur Penn, 1967). In France, we all heard the eponymous song (Brigitte Bardot and Serge Gainsbourg, 1968). The Highwaymen is a mirror version with two retired Rangers in pursuit of the infamous outlaws Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, considered as Robin Hood and his beloved wife by the plebs. A dead or alive hunt, in the 30's. Knowing that dead is a priori more practical, we suspect from the outset, even if we do not know the story, that it will probably be the chosen solution. In many aspects, I perceive the atmosphere of Unforgiven (Clint Eastwood, 1992), with its predictable and ineluctable ending, with cars and heavy machine guns instead of horses and Remingtons.

The actors, the photography, the costumes, the cars, the atmosphere of the post-1929 Great Depression, the rhythm, the dialogues, the soundtrack, ... This is an excellent movie! As a synthesis: 8/9 over 10.
