Adrift inthe depression-era Southwest, Clyde Barrow and Bonnie parker embark on a life of crime. They mean no harm. They crave adventure-and each other. Soon we start to love them too. But nothing in film history has prepared us for the cascading violence to follow. Bonnie & Clyde turns brutal. We learn they can be hurt-and dread they can be killed.
Bonnie & Clyde balances itself on a knife-edge of laughter and terror, thanks to vivid title role performances by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, and superb support from Michael J Pollard, Gene Hackman and Estelle Parsons.
