The 5: Criminal Couples of Film
This Week on the 5: Cinematic Criminal Couples
If you’re fearful of losing the passion in your relationship, try committing a few crimes. For these couples, criminal behavior is an aphrodisiac. In no particular order, here are five movie couples with uniquely passionate romances.
- Mickey and Mallory, Natural Born Killers. Woody Harrelson and Juliet Lewis play this criminal couple to perfection. Mass-murders in love who kill just for the thrill of it.
- Walter and Phyllis, Double Indemnity. Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck. Insurance investigator Walter (Fred MacMurray) could catch a fraud a million miles away until he met and fell for Phyllis (Barbara Stanwyck), a passionate woman who wants her husband dead so she can collect his life insurance money.
- Dennis and Sue Anne, Pretty Poison. A post-Psycho Anthony Perkins plays Dennis, a former mental patient who is unleashed on the world. When he convinces all-American sweet, innocent Sue Anne (played by Tuesday Weld) to sabotage the chemical company he works at, things quickly turn deadly.
- Kit and Holly, Badlands. Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek play Holly and sociopath Kit. She’s lovestruck. His main thrill in life is committing murder, and they embark on a horrific killing spree.
- Bonnie and Clyde, Bonnie and Clyde. Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty bring these two to life. They’re young. They’re beautiful. And they kill people.
