Dog Day Afternoon

Sidney Lumet's classic crime drama centred on a bank robbery that goes terribly wrong and catapults into a police standoff, triggering a media frenzy. Loosely based on real events. Stars Al Pacino.

Two gay Brooklyn men, Sonny (Pacino) and Sal (John Cazale), attempt a quick-and-loose bank heist, armed with rifles. But despite the cooperation of the staff, they soon discover the vault is near empty. Before long, the street is swarming with cops, the public and the media.

Writer Frank Pierson won an Oscar for his script.

It's beautifully acted by performers who appear to have grown up on the city's sidewalks in the heat and hopelessness of an endless midsummer.

But Lumet's film is also a study of a fascinating character: Sonny, the bank robber who takes charge, played by Al Pacino as a compulsive and most complex man.
