My Analytical Approach to Bonnie and Clyde the Movie
Bonnie and Clyde   Arthur Penn dir.

Starring : 
  • Warren Beatty as Clyde Barrow
  • Faye Dunaway as Bonnie Parker
  • Gene Hackman as Buck Barrow
  • Estelle parsons 
this movie took place during the great depression (1930's)

movie background - Clyde was never a "lover boy" .... he says "no lover boy, never saw the percentage in it "
Bonnie was more of a dreamer , they both just wanted to be known and famous; no matter what way that it happened ... they were in love with each other and robbed banks together.
Both Clyde and Buck were crazy, had been to jail and were rebels, but Clyde cared about people. His intention was never to hurt anyone. He just wanted the money he even let an innocent keep his money because it belonged to him and not the bank.

You could tell that Buck's wife Blanche was more of a church girl because she didn't like all of this robbing like everyone else did. She felt bad about it and mentioned that in the car alone with CW Moss... they got CW from the gas station, and he was in it because he felt like Bonnie and Clyde were his personal heroes. He wanted to get known just as much as they did . Bonnie and Blanche did not get along well and had a few situations; Blanche ended up being the group snitch after Buck died, and she was shot in the eye and could no longer see. This is also how media affected Bonnie and Clyde's actions; they wanted everyone to see and they wanted to get known for what they were doing. When they died they wanted their names to be carried on and for someone to know what they were about. They are and were famous.The media kept their adrenaline pumping , even when they caught a cop they handcuffed him and there was a whole situation. They did it for the media. They looked forward to being in the papers etc. They took pictures with the cop and Bonnie even kissed the cop , then the cop went back and talked about the situation. They all loved being the Barrow gang .. maybe except for Blanche.. !!
