From special guest writer Wanita.
After taking an introductory film class, Wanita wished to contribute a little of what she learned. Therefore, every Wednesday until the end of January, Wanita will be talking about a specific aspect of filmmaking or a film she enjoyed, i.e. Wanita Wednesdays! This week: a review of “Bonnie and Clyde”.
After seeing “Bonnie and Clyde”, I can understand why critics did not like the movie in the first place. I didn’t enjoy the movie, I just didn’t find it interesting too. However, maybe if I saw it a second time I might change my mind. The story of two people on the run because they kill for money and fun didn’t appeal to me. It wasn’t like it was a “Robin Hood” story, where they gave what they made to the poor, we didn’t see any of that. With a story like that you can feel for the characters, and you wouldn’t want to get caught. Even though they were caught, the way they were caught was harsh. The last scene was graphic, and the way it was shot did have a huge impact. You saw both Bonnie and Clyde being shot, falling to their death in slow motion.
