Al Pacino robs a bank. The end. Okay, there’s more. The 7th edition of the Not 100 Project somehow missed AFI’s cut, even though it’s got Pacino & director Sidney Lumet in great form. With all the summertime heat, the pre-op sex-change patients and the frenzied crowd, this hostage drama is one of the best in its genre. Hear us!

One thought on “Dog Day Afternoon (1975)

  1. For the most part I’m OK with post-’70s overacting Pacino, and I actually loved ‘Scent of a Woman,’ but I can’t begin to tell you how much I despised ‘Scarface.’ Dog Day is a great pick and yet another one I need to revisit after far too many years.
