Gun Crazy

            Gun Crazy is a film noir movie from 1950 directed by Joseph H. Lewis.

Does it start with boys and bb guns
Aiming at anything that moves
Including the dog?
Movie theater madness
Bonnie & Clyde

The Judge asks the boy
Why did you do it?

I don’t know, he says.
My sister says shooting is the only thing I’m good at.
It’s what I want to do
When I grow up.

I feel good when I shoot
Like I’m somebody.
