Bonnie and Clyde
"Bonnie and Clyde" was a romantic and humorous interpretation of the life of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. The 1967 film broke new ground in its depiction of sex and violence and used modern filmmaking techniques inspired by French New Wave directors. Historical accuracy was marginalized to evoke sympathy among viewers for the crime pair. The project was a success and was influential in the use of graphic violence in the film industry.
