SOLD OUT – Bonnie & Clyde
Loosely based on the exploits of depression-era lovers and bandits, Bonnie and Clyde. They fatefully meet when Clyde attempts to steal Bonnie’s mother’s car. Excited by his outlaw demeanor, she joins him on a crime spree that ends in one of the bloodiest death scenes in cinematic history.
“Penn’s realization of the Bonnie and Clyde mythos—from a Lubitschian meet-cute to the bloody, balletic death scene—is at once judicious and grandiloquent, relishing as much in the real-world implications of their egregiously violent ways as it does in Warren Beatty’s id-laden mannerisms and Faye Dunaway’s whimsical sociopathy.” Kathleen Sachs, Cine-File
“In an American decade increasingly defined by the Pill and “Free Love,” here was a film in which the gorgeous heroine blatantly came onto her equally gorgeous boyfriend—it’s usually the other way around—and inspired only anxiety and embarrassment. This was a film that extended and perfected a lot of the games Alfred Hitchcock played with audience identification.” – Rogerebert.com
“Considered New Hollywood’s moment of arrival, tipping square critic Bosley Crowther into retirement (The New York Times, they were a-changin’).” – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
