Dog Day Afternoon
Dir. Sidney Lumet. 1975, 125 mins. 35mm. With Al Pacino, John Cazale. Pacino gives his career performance in what Vincent Canby called Sidney Lumet’s “most accurate, most flamboyant New York movie.” Based on the bizarre true story of a 1972 bank robbery staged blocks from the movie’s Brooklyn location, Dog Day Afternoon is an anti-establishment thriller that perfectly captures the anarchy of 1970s New York.
