Product Overview

On a hot Brooklyn afternoon, two optimistic losers set out to rob a bank. Sonny (Al Pacino) is the mastermind, Sid (John Cazale) is the follower, and disaster is the result. Because the cops, crowds, TV cameras, and even the pizza man have arrived. The "well-planned" heist is now a circus.

Pacino and director Sidney Lumet, collaborators on Serpico, reteam for this boisterous comedy/thriller that earned six Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture) and won an Oscar for Frank Pierson's steetwise screenplay. Based on a true incident, Dog Day Afternoon "is one of the big ones, swarming with energy, excitement and drama" (Gene Shalit, NBC TV).

Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review Criminals become celebrities because their crimes provide fodder for the media. Many of the fashionable new crimes -- hijacking, taking hostages -- are committed primarily as publicity stunts. And a complex relationship grows up among the criminals, their victims, the police, and the press...That's the subject, in a way, of Sidney Lumet's pointed film...But Lumet's film is also a study of a fascinating character: Sonny, the bank robber who takes charge, played by Al Pacino as a compulsive and most complex man. He's street-smart, he fought in Vietnam, he's running the stick-up in order to get money for his homosexual lover to have a sex-change operation...The movie has an irreverent, quirky sense of humor, and we get some notion of the times we live in when the bank starts getting obscene phone calls -- and the giggling tellers breathe heavily into the receiver.

Review When Al Pacino won the Best Actor Oscar in 1993 for Scent of a Woman, it was typical of the Academy: The award was long overdue--he'd been nominated eight times--and given for a lesser performance in an inferior film. He should have won back in the 1970s, if not for either of his turns as Michael Corleone in The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II, then for his role as desperate bank robber Sonny in Sidney Lumet's true-crime saga Dog Day Afternoon. After more than 30 years, the latter is as taut and vital on the new Warner Bros. double-disc special edition DVD as it must have been on the big screen back in 1975...Above all, this is Pacino's movie. Hands down, he gives one of the finest performances of his career. It's moving and emotional; exhaustion is etched into his face as the night wears Sonny down.

Quotes
Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com ...modern cinema's template for the bank-robbery-gone-wrong flick is this one.
New York Daily News Bitingly funny and wonderfully compassionate.
John J. Puccio, DVD Town Few fictional thrillers are as tense or as funny as this real-life recreation.
Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com One of Pacino's best. One of Lumet's best. It's a true American classic.
Stephen Farber, MovieLine ...brims over with energy, rude humor and understated pathos.
