Bonnie and Clyde (Arthur Penn, USA, 1967)

"Bonnie and Clyde is the most excitingly American American movie since The Manchurian Candidate. The audience is alive to it." Pauline Kael, New Yorker

Generally considered as the film that announced the arrival of New Hollywood, with a cast of relative unknowns who would come to dominate the upcoming decade (Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Gene Hackman, Gene Wilder) , Bonnie and Cylde is that rare beast: a genuinely paradigm-shifting movie.
