Overview:
Hands down, one of the most important movies ever made, it changed forever how Hollywood depicted violence and broke new ground regarding editing and use of thematic music. Bank robbers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow (Dunaway and Beatty) set out on a wild crime spree across America's heartland and find themselves joined by new friends and old family as the gang of misfits become legends thanks to the media. The film-editing ambush of the duo is a classic. The movie intimates that Parker joined Barrow because she was bored. He needs to prove he's a man. Controversial when it was first released, the movie is now considered a seminal influence on virtually every good crime movie that followed.
Supporting Oscar to Parsons and to cinematographer Burnett Guffey.
