    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Bonnie and Clyde is a milestone in the history of American movies, a work of truth and brilliance. It is also pitilessly cruel, filled with sympathy, nauseating, funny, heartbreaking, and astonishingly beautiful. show more

    There is something special about the production, with its brash, vivid style, indelible performances by movie icons, and bold mixture of violence and comedy, romance and tragedy. show more

    Dave Kehr Chicago Reader

    It's by far the least controlled of Penn's films, but the pieces work wonderfully well, propelled by what was then a very original acting style. show more

    This inconsistency of direction is the most obvious fault of Bonnie and Clyde, which has some good ingredients, although they are not meshed together well. show more

    The New York Times

    It is a cheap piece of bald-faced slapstick comedy that treats the hideous depredations of that sleazy, moronic pair as though they were as full of fun and frolic as the jazz-age cutups in "Thoroughly Modern Millie." show more

    Whatever film Johnny Depp makes, he does it perfect and sets your thinking to whatever character he is playing. Good, bad or indifferent character, he just does it. I think he will be a better \"John Dillinger\" that John Dillenger did. :) KT
