Trivia

The scene in which C.W. Moss parallel parks the getaway car while Clyde and Bonnie are in the bank, and then has trouble getting the car out of the space, is based on a true event--but it didn't happen to Bonnie and Clyde. It occurred on June 10, 1933; the bank robbers in question were John Dillinger and William Shaw, and the driver was Paul "Lefty" Parker. This is documented in Bryan Burrough's "Public Enemies: American's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34," upon which the film Public Enemies (2009) was based. See more »

breaking the wave
27 February 2009 | by (Denver and Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

Rocking the cinema several years after the French New Wave and its deconstructivist approach to established film syntax, "Bonnie and Clyde" isn't so much an experiment in iconoclasm as it is a post-modern (re-)construction of the gangster film as a true American folktale fantasy. The existential vacuousness pervading the Nouvelle Vague finds renewed expression in the eerily empty landscapes and towns, in Clyde's charismatic ambivalence toward crime, and in Bonnie's charmingly fatalist poetry.

Yet Arthur Penn wisely replaces French frivolousness with the profound tension and despair of Depression-era dilapidation. Although it's a damn funny film, all the laughs are constrained by a sense of impending doom. Seeing Clyde hand his gun over to a pair of oldtimers so they can shoot at their now repossessed home they themselves built, acts as a snapshot of the titular characters' exploits: briefly gratifying, enduringly defiant, but essentially futile.
