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 ! )

We saw this in 1967: no ratings back then!!!

There were NO ratings in 1967, hence, my BFF and I went to see BandC many times: we were totally enamered with it. Probably because we had never seen anything like it. We were 9 years old at the time. I am sure that our parents had no idea about the content of this movie. Parents didn't worry about it 'back then' because we were not inundated with violence on TV like today. I'd say that kids now are desensitized to violence which is sad. The violence in BandC isn't what I would call 'gratuitous' meaning, the violence is there for a reason, to tell the story. Too much violence, story line is too complicated for young viewers. They should be old enough to follow the story.
