Episode 101: "Bonnie & Clyde" and "Easy Rider"
Easy, Clyde! The movies that changed everything! Many films can claim to have shifted the way movies were made - but none so much as the artistic earthquake brought on by our double-feature tonight: Arthur Penn's game-changing Bonnie & Clyde, and the counterculture masterpiece Easy Rider! As our listeners know, Martini Giant loves the films of the 1970s more than any other decade - and with tonight's double feature, we take a look at the one-two punch that saved the studios and changed our understanding of what movies could be: Arthur Penn's brutal, sultry, and utterly game-changing Bonnie & Clyde, starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty - and the elegiac counterculture masterpiece Easy Rider directed by and starring Dennis Hopper, with iconic performances by Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson!
