This week we discuss the landmark historical film BONNIE AND CLYDE. Our reviews are followed by discussions about how this film was a cultural jumping-off point, and how it’s filled with examples of iconoclastically pushing back against society. Next Time The next in our heist mini-series is the original THE ITALIAN JOB, from 1969. Recent Media BRIDGE OF SPIES (2015): Stephen Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance STAGED (2020): Simon Evans, Michael Sheen, David Tennant GOOD OMENS (2019): Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Michael Sheen Recommendations CHINATOWN (1974): Roman Polanski, Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID (1969): George Roy Hill, Paul Newman, Robert Redford EASY RIDER (1969): Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, Jack Nicholson UNFORGIVEN (1992): Clint Eastwood, Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman Footnotes The Wiki entries on the historical figures Bonnie and Clyde and the Barrow Gang are interesting, especially when compared with the description of the film — if only to see the discrepancies involved. Rob mentions the ‘Tommy Gun’; in case you’re unsure about this (so ‘Bugsy Malone Gun’ isn’t enough of a description), here’s more. Towards the end of the episode, we talk about the use of some surprisingly modern editing techniques in the film; this is a good article on ‘MTV editing’. Finally, here’s a reminder about another technique mentioned by Rob (‘Russian’ or ‘Soviet Montage’) in our discussion of this.

This week we tackle the original OCEAN’S ELEVEN — over 40 years before the Soderbergh re-make, and set in a very different time. After…mixed reviews, we talk about this film’s military roots, why the focus on friendship is a poignant one, and how this is a heist film that’s probably not about the heist. Next Time Our next heist film is the genre-defining 1967 film BONNIE AND CLYDE. Recent Media SCANDAL (2012–18):Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, Henry Ian Cusick ANT-MAN (2015): Peyton Reed, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly THE EQUALIZER 1, 2 (2014, 2018): Antoine Fuqua, Richard Wenk, Denzel Washington Recommendations THE APARTMENT (1960): Billy Wilder, Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine HARVEY (1950): Henry Koster, James Stewart, Wallace Ford ROBIN AND THE 7 HOODS (1964): Gordon Douglas, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin RIO BRAVO (1959): Howard Hawks, John Wayne, Dean Martin Footnotes Firstly, the wikipedia page of the film is an interesting read, as is IMDB (especially the ’Trivia’): www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocean's_11 and www.imdb.com/title/tt0054135. In light of our discussion of the changing face of Vegas, this is a good set of pictures: www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/travel/vintage-photos-of-las-vegas-a4248276.html. And this [if the link works, Rob!] is a really [interesting essay] (watermark.silverchair.com/phr_2001_70_4_627.pdf?token=AQECAHi208BE49Ooan9kkhW_Ercy7Dm3ZL_9Cf3qfKAc485ysgAAAqkwggKlBgkqhkiG9w0BBwagggKWMIICkgIBADCCAosGCSqGSIb3DQEHATAeBglghkgBZQMEAS4wEQQMdH8bS4I-YRPX1OV5AgEQgIICXKgBsvuzWdwwULuLzbXvUUQbxerQBlL0b07LY6lTyFyJE-fdahCuDYND17uU515tMuNy-8hL6LQwbFakRnTiEplgvrXNquouZqmieIxUJCIRFnYoS77VLLsnHhxhSP6cijKgKT67nCSbgtb8iNXwbL_g350P_J3VAgNUj67su5C_sQpAFka9KgaJ-GV87g2Es5A-ZmTKy_OqTvB13nekjA1UpuVGejWEXR8QIpctOSy_C-fcNqGjOgQnzfPh9XeHgc6n9CzYog3vVq6PLnYt3q_bUeUpOmuBHZluNFDXDIOSoIoAdocCD3znObqkoQSyG4IfIrl95sXzBV0kuudKdmLnVN5lhuHDbwlRHIk-aSzKRlMy82weVASOhsMmfLHlw1qC0pDBEOOa8hvMGuso0qQW97qoa3FYfg8paL0YPlOiv5cs9ry1KEVhwQMYOvC9oaC87N486NLbl2CwPzcN2_l6Ted7rFxh3BN8KK-KBMP05fqw6dRzXwq9trVZlI9ktMlHNujhHGKYTgkDvJyx3EITmawn-jgNgZrAxgpjKOALMpUnvI_8BOSew4bnFMCH1njzyVT4HochwzqnA-U_g3KfAFSpjbjMVMK79rnvdCGCK5JbBKpdr86vmLLjz-3uF6glBwwJ5DmhaQvjP_7ERWASDC_QvcepK5LF2i_T6BgKyfBjrEUPAwogbVVau0M2jnJ_Tai7iqZ8UDVvFYJUkJSCu7rtIJrDIXCNOao2oye1IgEzyXa_xy7b3qatAf6huFg3HecU2vhgqlwFLYNqq_T4HOxziRd3sxvB6TE).
