They Rob Banks

I’ve been a little distracted this summer, so I haven’t had time to join in the fun at Lance’s summer movie series over at Newcritics, but this week’s movie is one of my all-time faves and, quite possibly, the film I most enjoy teaching: Arthur Penn’s Bonnie and Clyde.  The Self-Styled Siren, James Wolcott, and other Newcritics have already listed dozens of reasons to appreciate Bonnie and Clyde, so drop by just for their observations about the movie.  Also worth checking out: Lance posted a brief excerpt from Rick Perlstein’s Nixonland–one of the many books I’m dying to read–discussing contemporary reactions to B&C.  The party starts at 10 PM, but feel free to stop by later, if you’re interested.
