#FilmyFlashback: Bonnie And Clyde

In 1930s, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow robbed banks at gun-point. They were the subject of many imaginative fantasies during their stint. So much so that it’s said that when their lives ended, their bodies were stripped of valuables because the on-lookers were hell-bent on collecting souvenirs from the corpses.

Bonnie And Clyde
The film made in 1967 is a much romanticized account of the infamous American couple. The roles of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker are played by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, respectively. Directed by Arthur Penn, the film shows us how the criminal couple meet and instantly fall for each other. It’s attraction, but it comes from something much deeper. She likes him because of his brazen criminal nature. He likes her because he sees that she understands his need to commit crime. The thrill, the excitement- that is what binds them together. 

The chemistry between the lead pair is great. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway give stellar performances, recreating the poses and scenes that were known about the criminals. Although the film misses out on many details and also takes creative liberty with their characters, it makes for an exciting watch. 

The characters of the film give us great chemistry. Not just the lead actors, but the entire gang does a stunning job at making the film believable. Gene Hackman as Buck Barrow, Estelle Parsons as Blanche Barrow and Michael J. Pollard as C.W. Moss, make the notorious gang great on screen. Although the film may not exactly be in tune with our times, it is still a good watch.
