Bonnie and Clyde (1967)


Bonnie and Clyde (1967)

Another true crime movie based on events which took place during the years of the Great Depression in America, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, along with their gang, plagued rural gas stations and small shops with a string of robberies

Not only did they steal, but they were also responsible for murdering a total of nine policemen and multiple civilians.

Bonnie joins Clyde since she is bored of working as a waitress.

The 1967 movie tells the story of this young couple and a gang who commit regular robberies which become increasingly more violent and serious.

The image of two outlaws, barely out of their teenage years, robbing banks and riding off into the sunset is an intoxicating one. The myth around the notorious couple has been immortalized in countless works of art, including a 1967 film directed by Arthur Penn. Instead of depicting the couple as heroic figures out to avenge the poor, the film shows Bonnie (Faye Dunaway) and Clyde as restless and insecure 20-somethings, who had an overwhelming attraction to violence and crime.  

The death of Bonnie and Clyde is often misinterpreted as the tragic end of a loving couple, but Penn's film sheds a very different light on the duo's bullet-laden, blood-soaked ending.
