Had a bit of a New Hollywood classics day today for a class tomorrow. Somehow I’ve never seen these although I’ve seen all their endings/key scenes before:
Bonnie and Clyde
Yep, can see why this was such a cultural milestone in 1967. Also enjoyed the nods to French New Wave, very much like an American ‘Breathless’. That end is still pretty shocking even by today’s standards, although I was waiting for the “raindrops keep falling on my head” scene but it turns out thats butch cassidy and the sundance kid. Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty are great.
Enjoyed this a lot, particularly how slow it is. I remember when I was a wee guy loads of kids complaining about that but enjoying the possession scenes. The film is so much more than that though. The film within a film stuff with the kid’s mum is great, like how that glamourous world is counterposed with the devil scenes.
Yeah, also excellent. The ending felt a little off but I liked the readings that it’s either a dying dream or that he’s going to repeat himself.
We are also gonna y’all about Jaws but I’ve seen that a couple times already, great film too though
