DOG DAY AFTERNOON   1975   dog_day
Directed by by Sidney Lumet
125 minutes
In English

Based on a true story, Al Pacino gives the performance of his life as Sonny, a would-be robber who tries to hold-up the Chase Manhattan Bank in Brooklyn with his friend. But as the robbery is executed, things go wrong, and the two desperate thieves end up being trapped in the bank with their hostages. To say anything more about the plot would just ruin the movie, but its certainly a brilliant story that’s unleashed…. almost bordering on a black comedy. With expertly paced direction by Sidney Lumet and dynamo performances by the two main leads, Al Pacino and John Cazale (The Godfather).

Full of the atmosphere, zeitgeist and landscape of 70s NYC, this movie feels almost nostalgic when seen today. For me it’s a cops-and-robbers story, which in the end poignantly reveals who is actually honest and who is actually corrupt.

This will be a beautiful high-definition projection of this 70s masterpiece.
