Bonnie and Clyde

I hit up my local Cinemark for their showing of Bonnie and Clyde, a classic from 1967 celebrating its 40th anniversary. I've always been curious about this film, as it gets name-checked a lot in film circles.

I didn't particularly care for the film. It was oddly shot and oddly edited. The music was odd. I didn't believe any of the motivations for the characters (Bonnie and Clyde and the Barrow gang must have been more interesting in real life, right?). I couldn't stop thinking about how Bonnie always looked so fabulous when she left with Clyde on a whim one day with nothing.

The film is fun just for seeing a very young and very handsome Warren Beatty. Other than that, I'd likely skip it.
