Arthur Penn’s movie controversially asks audiences to identify with amoral but attractive outlaws, right up to their inevitable, brutal slaughter by the guns of a repressive society. Though a product of the rebellious 60s, the film is so well made that it stands up as a classic of the gangster genre, that subverts many of the expectations that audiences then had of that genre (see Stephen Schiff’s analysis, below). Burnett Guffey's cinematography won an Oscar.
