Did we miss something on diversity?

Back when everyone looked cool

A film that is like a slow stroll on a Sunday afternoon, mixed with some violent gunplay. Dunaway shines (per usual) and the always charismatic Gene Wilder offers a soft bounce when the film needs it the most. It's exudes cool, it shines, it basks in coolness. It makes bank robbers look very that you almost want them to get away with it kind of way...but never reveals what "getting away with it" would look like.

Great Movie For (My Point Of View) Tweens 10+!!!!!!!!!!

'Bonnie & Clyde' is a gangster film about a outlaw couple in the roaring '30's. Like all gangster movies it has violence only the mind of Tim Burton on LSD and stuff like that.i think tweens are mature to watch 'Bonnie And Clyde', the rated-R film on a outlaw couple. ( Saw this with my son last night and he has nightmares when we see movies like this and he didn't ! )

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
