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. What results is a two day media circus in which his private life and the humiliation of the police is laid bare for the whole city.
