Bonnie and Clyde

Starring: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway
Directed by: Arthur Penn

This has been on my "to-watch list" for a really long time, and I finally did it! This is probably my favorite era of cinema--the Modern Era. It's so unapologetically "cinematic." Lingering close-ups and beautiful cinematography and rich scores.

Anywho, Bonnie and Clyde. Beatty and Dunaway are so hot together, and I definitely was sexually frustrated for Bonnie. Clyde, just give it to her! You suck! I like shoot 'em up bang bang stuff, too. You really get attached to the five main characters, and they all have great chemistry with each other. It got a bit repetitive at times...repeated bank robberies followed by twangy banjos and a car speeding off. However, I definitely get why it's a classic, and I recommend it.
