"Oh lorde," is right. Major technical failures throughout, in addition to headache giving dialogue just makes you want to scream that.

-IGNORE THIS "OUT OF FIVE" RATING
4/4
One of the greatest movies ever made, a milestone of American cinema detailing famous outlaws and their publicity from regular citizens. Broke the rules of violence shown on film (that stirred quite an amount of controversy in its day, and shocked audiences) but was raved by critics and now it's rightfully regarded as an American classic; many film buffs consider this to be the movie that was responsible for launching several careers. Estelle Parsons took home Best Supporting Actress Oscar although every performance is parallel. Burnett Guffey's audacious Cinematography also Won an Oscar for this masterpiece. Director Arthur Penn's best film. Don't miss this!

Loved it, but hated glorifying these murderers.

It is said that the culture of my own country, does sometimes make heroes out of criminals (19th century bushrangers for example).

Apart from the violence, I had to ask myself, if I was being persuaded to feel sympathy for these characters? I do not know.

Good performances and cinematography with a style somewhat ahead of its time. This movie is more comedy and romance rather than drama and violence. Considered to be one of the greatest gangster films of all time. AAN 1001

Very slow, with an erratic story line. It's only saving grace is the chemistry between the lead actors.

One of the films credited with dismantling the Hayes Code, Bonnie and Clyde didn't just challenge the choking standards, it beat them up and took its lunch money. Journalists Robert Benton and David Newman mined Benton's childhood memories of hearing folk tales about the titular 1930s bank robbers and splayed it out into a tale that was condemned for glorifying vigilantism, sex and violence. Unschooled in three-act structures, Benton and Newman didn't worry about consistency of tone, preferring to emulate the mercurial mood of the French New Wave classics they idolized by writing a script that was funny, romantic, sad and violent all at once. Arthur Penn was entrusted with the reins, directing almost everyone to an Oscar nom and using camera methods that seem beyond the technical limits of the time. So, controversy AND quality? Why did this formula die?

A movie that has managed to become as iconic as the real life criminals it portrays. It is interesting to watch considering it was so "bold" and "controversial" when it was initially released. Tame by today's standards, the film is still solid. The movie star turns by Beatty and Dunaway feel false, but supporting cast is amazing -- particularly Estelle Parsons. And, the final scene remains surprisingly grim.

Best Love-Story ever made..

unconvincing romantic angle is portrayed by Bonnie and clyde and a loose plot serve to undermine the heist action and shootouts

I adored this movie. This movie was so much fun to watch thanks to Beatty and Dunaway's amazing performances and career best performances. This was my favorite Gene Hackman performance as well. Estelle Parsons deservingly won her Oscar for this and it was a nice surprise to see Gene Wilder pop up. The directing, writing, sound design, costumes, and score were all wonderful and for being a 2 hour movie, it felt like it was 30 minutes that's how much fun it was watching it. This will no doubt be added to my favorite movies list (not sure the ranking yet) but as much as I loved In the Heat of the Night, this should have won Best Picture. It was so good I actually considered watching it again right then and there but it was like 2 am

The ending was far more graphic than "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid. "

beautifully shot and a terrific cast

bonnie and Clyde deliver everything it's hyped up to be a classic from start to end

Another film that I am not convinced of the validity of its placement on the AFI's top 100 films. A decent film on a fascinatingly morbid topic, but it is a shame the Directors took such artistic licence with the film. An interesting depiction of the 'Public Enemy era' and the post-Depression USA, with an indication of the violence of the pair and their gang, but it would have been enhanced by being both more accurate and including some of the more dramatic events of their life on the run.

Saudades das narrativas hollywoodianas dos anos 1960-1970.

A classic crime thriller.

A classic in the bank robbery genre. Any film fan who hasn't seen this is betraying the concept of the "film fan."

When you hear those two names Bonnie and Clyde, you would probably think of them as bank robbers that shoots and kills their obstacles when you probably haven't heard their whole story. Arthur Penn delivered to share the story and had presented an insight of the outlaws' lives that were filled with surprised moments of rare lightheartedness than just constantly doing trouble but instead trying to live free while avoiding the pay up of their predictable fate that awaits the two. The story was well-performed by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway as the titular pair with Gene Hackman as the bonus treat when enjoying this nicely-followed biopic. On the ending note, the notable fate that'd done most of the job to give this a film a reputation based on how well it was executed and how it proved its matching power of the atmosphere.

The original "Bonnie and Clyde" feature may be violent and has strange behavior among its characters, but it was well-made on being typically mostly accurate while the performances and the cinematography expressed the story well while matching the power - an ability that most or some biopics possessed. It's a film with the winning materials that'll bring you the enjoyment you'll mostly appreciate if ignoring the violence and the strangeness would be helpful to have a satisfying experience than knowing the basic fact and fate. (B+)

(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)
