Bank heist or circus?
Dog Day Afternoon
Starring Al Pacino
Directed by Sidney Lumet
USA 1975 119 minutes
On one of the hottest days in August 1972, two optimistic losers set out to rob a bank. Sonny (Al Pacino) is the mastermind, Sal (John Cazale) is the follower, and disaster is the result. The robbery should have taken 10 minutes. 4 hours later, it was like a circus sideshow. 8 hours later it was the hottest thing on live TV. 12 hours later it was all over.
Based on a true story, this Oscar-winning masterwork showcases Al Pacino in an unforgettable performance as one of the most bizarre bank robbers ever to appear on film.
