Bonnie & Clyde

So this is happening, and I guess you better just just deal with it. The story of "Bonnie & Clyde," immortalized in Arthur Penn's iconic 1967 film, is now being told again by Bruce Beresford ("Peace, Love & Misunderstanding," "Mao's Last Dancer" and "The Contract") with Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger as the outlaws. The results?

Well, see for yourself below. A two-part, miniseries production between A&E, Lifetime and History, the budget looks certainly small screen—HBO this isn't. And really, it doesn't make much of a case for standing on its own outside of the movie we already know. That being said, we like the leads, and with Holly Hunter and William Hurt in support, we suppose this might get a watch out of morbid curiosity from our end.

"Bonnie & Clyde" arrives on your TV on Sunday, December 8th and Monday, December 9th at 9 PM. Watch below. [Deadline]

    CONTRARIAN doesn't have a clue about cinematography or what Bonnie and Clyde looks like. Yet some people think they're authorities. Wantabees can pretend they know something.

    Believe it or not, Bonnie was always worried about her appearance and made every effort to dress nice as did Clyde. They would leave their clothes at a tailor and come back through and get them if they were able to, if not they would get new ones. Yes they did a lot of camping and living out of their car, but at the time there motor courts all over the South and they stayed there also. It was nothing for Clyde to drive 1000 miles in 24 hrs, so they were usually long gone from the locals and at that time Police counldn't cross state lines. I am not sure if I will watch or not because the pic at the top shows Bonnie holding a weapon during a robbery. Every member of the gang that was present at one time or another all swore that Bonnie never fired a shot, nor accompanied Clyde, W.D. Jones, Henry Methvin or any of the others inside a store they robbed. And for the record they robbed one bank, but every bank job or whatever else that happened in the South between 1932 and 1934 was attributed to them.

    Bonnie and Clyde spent most of their time camping out and living out of a car. I doubt very much bonnie would have all that make up on and be dressed like she is going out to dinner in an expansive New York restaurant. This trailer has them dressed like new York mafia which is ridicules and very unlikely.

    The wardrobe was sourced and crafted after analyzing the actual wardrobe that Bonnie and Clyde wore in photos from the time that they were on their crime spree. Many of the costumes were actually from that era. It may seem unlikely to you, but this wardrobe is as accurate as it gets.

    This trailer doesn't do a very good job of selling this mini-series. Hopefully another trailer gets cut before the marketing really finds purchase.

    This looks like it belongs on Cinemax or something. What's up with those production values?

  • Contrarian | September 24, 2013 10:32 PM

    Perhaps. The cinematographer was Francis Kenny who typically works on "Justified". Not a very artistic cinematographer, but technically sound.

  • Gregario | September 24, 2013 2:59 AM

    I think he's referring to the ugly cinematography and inherent "video-ness"

  • Contrarian | September 24, 2013 1:24 AM

    You mean the era appropriate wardrobe and vehicles, the make-up and direction provided by Oscar nominees or the architecturally accurate historical buildings? Or maybe it was the cast of relatively unknowns that made you think Cinemax? Please, do elaborate.

    WTF spoilers in the trailer much?? omg

  • Contrarian | September 24, 2013 1:18 AM

    Snape kills Dumbledore. Vader is Lukes father. The Titanic sinks. Verbal is Keyser Soze. Bruce Willis was dead all along.

    I wonder how it ends?

  • The Cineass | September 23, 2013 6:35 PMReply

    Love that those are the films you list as representative of Bruce Beresford, considering he also helmed such Oscar-nominated films as "Breaker Morant," "Tender Mercies" and, lest we forget, "Driving Miss Daisy."

  • Contrarian | September 24, 2013 10:39 PM

    The best work of Mr. Beresford was intentionally left out of the article by Kevin Jagernauth for reasons we can only interpret. My interpretation is a pretentious sense of self worth. That would be like penning an article that mentions Spielberg as the director of 1941, Twilight: The Movie and Sugarland Express. Intentionally avoiding the most recognized work of a director is laughable.

    I love the cast, so I know I'll be watching this!

  • Rob | September 23, 2013 5:07 PMReply

    I just puked in my mouth a little. The costumes look like porn-budget.

  • mike | September 23, 2013 9:23 PM

    Shut up, you don't know what kind of porn Rob watches!

    I have it on good authority that he exclusively watches vintage Great Depression-era erotica. That's clearly what he's referring to here.

  • LeeM | September 23, 2013 6:43 PM

    Not sure what porn you are watching but it must be big budget porn. These costumes certainly were not cheap.

  • AJ | September 23, 2013 6:30 PM

    Considering the costumes are authentic period pieces (as in literally from the era) , you must be watching exceptionally expensive porn.
