Bonnie and Clyde

Monday, 2/8 at 8 PM in Room 307, the DCAD Film Club will present Bonnie and Clyde, with commentary by Christine Tate and Anthony Campanelli. Ryin Jones' poster announcing the event can be seen around campus.
Bonnie and Clyde represents a modern rendition of the outlaw myth embodied in the Robin Hood legends. Members of the King Arthur and Robin Hood course will find the film interesting to compare to the medieval and renaissance versions of Robin Hood that we will read and to the Errol Flynn movie version. Movie lovers in general will find this classic film well worth watching.

  1. I thought the fruit at the end was quite symbolic. It might have not been an apple, but as art students we all understand the complexity of a bunch of fruit surrounding a nude figure. Its representation was supported by Clyde's rolling away from it, after being shot of course.
