Personally, I don't care one bit about all of the praise that this film has garnered for itself over the last 40+ years. For the most part, I found this one's story (as well as its title characters) to be pretty dull stuff, in the long run.

It sure seemed to me that noted film-maker, Arthur Penn, couldn't make up his mind whether he was directing a dead-serious crime-drama, or a silly, empty-headed, little slapstick comedy.

But, either way, this picture didn't have enough going for it, in whatever genre, to hold my undivided attention for more than but a few minutes at a time.

And, what really began to grate on my nerves in this story was all of the thwarted attempts at sex that took place between the Bonnie and Clyde characters. Man, the snivelling soap opera that went on between these 2 gloating, bickering, gun-crazy airheads was enough to make this dissatisfied viewer start to press the fast-forward button on his handset more often than he really should have.

I'd been telling myself that I'd get around to watching this one someday, but given the time period of its release, I wasn't expecting much. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. It's no blockbuster, but I was definitely entertained.

Bonnie and Clyde is a Five Star All TIme Top Ten Pick of mine. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway put in their best acting of all their movies. Gene Hackman adds a lot to the movie as Clyde's brother. It is all true and an wonderful story of crime, adventure, and romance. I watch this movie every couple of years just to enjoy it all over again!

Personally I love this movie. The cinematography is good and being watching my way through a 501 must see move list this has to be one of my favorites so far.
