"Awake in the Dark: The Best of Roger Ebert," assembles the essential writings of the Chicago Sun-Times film critic in a single volume for the first time. "Awake in the Dark" surveys his 40-year catalog, including reviews, essays and interviews. For the next five weeks we'll publish excerpts here from the collection's highlights in each decade, from the '60s to the '00s. This week: "Bonnie and Clyde" (1967)
