34 – Dog Day Afternoon (1975)

This week our discussion centers around Sidney Lumet’s Dog Day Afternoon (IMDb), a film set primarily in a Brooklyn bank branch under siege by 2 desperate outlaws, one a quiet loner out to prove himself, and one a down-on-his-luck man making a last ditch effort to pay for his wife’s sex reassignment surgery. ¬†Featuring Al Pacino and Jim Cazale, this classic tells a tale of the American Dream gone awry on a hot day in New York City.
