L.A. Observer

This sounds great. Anyone seeing this film for the first time now without the ancillary material might wonder what all the fuss was about. But it was groundbreaking cinema at the time for some of the reasons you've touched on.

Did any of the interviews credit Pauline Kael for helping to make this film?


Hey Observer: Yes, the "Bonnie and Clyde" DVD covers the negative reviews, how the film flopped in its first week, and how it was basically withdrawn from distribution.

New Yorker critic Kael is credited with writing a review that saved the film and gave it new life. One major critic retracted his negative review after reading Kael's piece.

thanks for the comment.
