Roger Ebert’s film criticism was brilliant from the beginning. His piece on "Bonnie and Clyde" was written in 1967, his first year as a film critic, and is his key early review. While other critics detested the film and would later have to admit they'd been blind to the beauty of a masterpiece, Roger instantly recognized it as something major that foretold a change in the way movies would be made.
