Sheer brilliance.

Films like this reaffirm my faith in cinema. It is without a doubt one of Al Pacino's least recognised film roles, but nevertheless, one of his most endearing and brilliant.

Dog Day Afternoon recreates the true events of a bank robbery that occurred in August, 1972 in Brooklyn, New York City. Pacino plays Sonny, the brains of what turns out to be a very inept organisation of thieve... read more

Nearly Flawless Classic.

"Dog Day Afternoon" is a nearly flawless classic that combines humor, drama, and a little action into one big masterpiece. In my opinion it is one of Al Pacino's best films ever.

"It started out as a simple bank robbery on a calm afternoon day in New York, and turned into a chaotic circus for everyone to see."

This film tells the true story of a huge and rather comedi... read more

Writing a song or directing a film based on real-life incidents is one of the many tropes they use and we actually have many great examples: Music (Smoke on the Water, 18 & Life, Jeremy) and Movies (Raging Bull, Monster, Schindler's List) Dog Day Afternoon took inspiration from an article from Life magazine reading "Boys in the Bank" and they also described the lead robber, John Wojtowicz as "simi... read more

A New York man and two accomplices are besieged in a bank with all the bank employees after his attempt to rob enough money to pay for his lover's sex change operation goes awry.

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (2017) (428 movies items)

" Notes: It is definitely one of these movies which actually deserve their terrific reputation. Indeed, it is easily one of the best movies starring Al Pacino, the guy was really on fire back in those days, and he gave here one of his best performances. The fact that it is a true story didn't really interest me but it was just an amazing story and it kept me mesmerized until the end. Indeed, the main character, Sonny Wortzik, is such a deeply flawed but still charismatic guy, he could be one of "

" After the initial title sequence (Elton John, "Amoreena") there is no background or incidental music on the soundtrack (the start of the Looney Tunes opening music is heard after the TV/phone interview, but it's cut-off after a few seconds, and also Uriah Heep's "Easy Living" is heard briefly through a hand-held radio."
