366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 236

The Date: May 23
The Movie: Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
What Is It?: Arthur Penn skips backward forty years to tell the tale of a pair of smooching bank robbers and jolts Hollywood movie violence into the future. Perhaps the most charmingly non-dated countercultural movie of the sixties. The supporting cast is divine.
Why Today?: On this day in 1934, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow are mowed down by the dirty coppers.
