What is it about a Butch Cassidy or a John Dillinger that captures the imagination? Part of it might be our childlike fascination with outlaws, those individuals on the edges of society who flout the norms that bind the rest of us. In some respects, it may be our love for those who take what they do not have; but even so, there has to be a measure of elusiveness involved. The outlaw must be crafty, display cunning, and a cat-and-mouse game must ensue. The stories have to entangle our minds and ensnare our judgments. Time has to bleed away. And if all the right pieces fall in place, eventually, we might find ourselves standing in historical escapism.

How do you make a good movie in this country without being jumped on? Our experience as we watch it has some connection with the way we reacted to movies in childhood: with how we came to love them and to feel they were ours—not an art that we learned over the years to appreciate but simply and immediately ours. When an American movie is contemporary in feeling, like this one, it makes a different kind of contact with an American audience from the kind that is made by European films, however contemporary. But even for that group there is an excitement in hearing its own private thoughts expressed out loud and in seeing something of its own sensibility become part of our common culture. Our best movies have always made entertainment out of the anti-heroism of American life; they bring to the surface what, in its newest forms and fashions, is always just below the surface.
All those who read Guinn's account of Bonnie and Clyde were impressed by the unprecedented level of detail he brings to the story. But a few seemed to think that all of Guinn's data got in the way of the chase.
