Dog Day Afternoon (1975)

The upheaval of the 1970s is the backdrop for Sidney Lumet’s brilliant Dog Day Afternoon, a 1975 crime drama that is as much about the personal as it is about the political. 575 more words


Dog Day Afternoon (1975)

Director: Stanley Lumet
My score: 
Personal highlight: “Wyoming”
Favourite character: Pacino’s hair

Still one of my favourite films of. all. time. Considering this was made in the mid 70s, the portrayal of LGBT issues is surprisingly well handled and overall the film gives us an amazing insight into the heavy-handed New York policing which had previously turned public opinion against the cops. 318 more words

Dog Day Afternoon (1975)


With Sidney Lumet’s best work, the devil is always in the detail, and so it is with Dog Day Afternoon. In the hands of a lesser director, this would have been just another heist film, with perhaps some interesting performances. 112 more words
