SYNOPSIS

‘Still the standard by which many New York movies are compared, Lumet’s terrific telling of a true-story Brooklyn bank robbery gone way out of hand is just as captivating as ever. In an Oscar nominated role, Al Pacino is winning as Sonny, the young man leading the job to fund his girlfriend’s sex-change operation (Chris Sarandon, also Oscar nominated) and becoming a media sensation in the process. By turns funny and suspenseful, Dog Day Afternoon remains disarmingly uncanny in how easily we confuse news, spectacle, and entertainment, relishing the vicarious thrill at the expense of others. With John Cazale and Charles Durning lending first-rate supporting performances.’ Film Society Lincoln Center
