Depression-era drifters Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) and Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway) embark on a life of crime. They crave adventure and each other. We were unprepared us for the cascading violence that would follow; we learn they can be hurt and dread they can be killed. The vivid title-role performances get superb support from Michael J. Pollard, Gene Hackman and Estelle Parsons, 1967 Best Supporting Actress Academy Award winner. It continually dazzles, thanks to director Arthur Penn, cinematographer Burnett Guffey (winner of the films second Oscar) and editor Dede Allen. Generations later, its still a thunderous, thrilling ride.
