Bonnie and Clyde
18111 min

Director: Arthur Penn Starring:Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway Released:Mon 01 Apr 2024


Faye Dunaway’s Bonnie Parker abandons her boring waitress job to team up with Warren Beatty’s dilettantish desperado Clyde Barrow, moving from amateurish hold-ups to big-time bank robbing, and eventually hooking up with dopey pump jockey C.W. Moss (Michael J. Pollard) and Clyde’s older brother Buck (Gene Hackman) and his wife, preacher’s daughter Blanche (Estelle Parsons), and kidnapping overly-excitable Gene Wilder along the way. A watershed in American moviemaking — originally critically divided and famously condemned by The New York Times — that pushed the envelope of movie sex and violence, especially its bullet-riddled denouement. Nominated for ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Director, and for the five principle actors, winning for Parsons and cinematographer Burnett Guffey.
