Bonnie and Clyde
Rated R, 111 min. Directed by Arthur Penn. Starring Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Gene Hackman, Estelle Parsons, Michael J. Pollard.
So definitive in so many ways, Bonnie and Clyde has become a modern touchstone. Wonderful performances accentuate the sharp script by Robert Benton and David Newman, while Arthur Penn's brilliant camera strategies helped fuel a national debate about violence in movies and the inauguration of a new rating system.
