"They're young. They're in love. They rob banks."

In 1967, Arthur Penn rolled out the carpet for New Hollywood in a hail of bullets. Sexy, savage, sly, and, at times, slapstick, this seminal film was met with outrage by many of the day's top critics for glamorizing violence. But audiences adored it, and movies would never be quite the same again.

Come celebrate Penn's career by live-tweeting Bonnie and Clyde on Saturday, October 16, at 8:00pm Pacific time.* Tell your friends! Everyone welcome!
