Recently I encountered a TV review with Al Pacino (at 2004 Golden Globe ceremony perhaps), where he was asked to tell the names of three greatest films in his career. The answer: "Serpico", "Scarecrow", and "Dog Day Afternoon"

Directed by veteran director Sidney Lumet, "Dog Day Afternoon" captures masterfully the social and political zeitgeist of the early 1970s, where optimism and morale was shaking due to post-Vietnam trauma, cynicism, new wave of Communist threat, distrust of any authority, oil crisis and imminent stagnation in economy. In this background, humane but equally awkward Sonny Wortzik (played by Al Pacino) come on the scene as an ANTI-HERO with a Brooklyn bank robbery, which would end up with a real tragedy.

The movie have them all: robbery, hostages, negotiations, ineptness, cunningness, frustration, deception and death. The direction and characterizations are sharp and brilliant. Lumet makes perfect use out of limited locations. Although 80 percent of the movie takes place inside the bank, there's never a dull or wasted moment. It is beautifully scripted and shot all along. Pacino gives a stellar performance as Sonny, one of the most interesting movie characters in motion picture history. Performances of John Cazale as Sonny's sociopathic accomplice, Sal and Charles Durning as Detective Moretti were wondrous too.

I must admit that this is a kind of movie that really does deserve special edition treatment. Eventually, this new 30th-Anniversary 2-disc edition has a great collection of extras. Most notably, it contains a commentary by Sidney Lumet which is amazing to hear from that great director. Second disc has an extensive documentary "The Making of Dog Day Afternoon" that consists of 4 featurettes (including interviews with Lumet, Pacino, Durning and Sarandon) that can be viewed separately or altogether. Not just Lumet or Pacino fans, this is a must have for any movie collector.

This cracking little thriller really surprised me. It was a non-stop edge of your seat bank heist where I really couldn't guess what was going to happen next.
When Al Pacino and his partner try to rob a bank, things start to go wrong. It becomes a media circus, and little by little facts about Pacino and why they were robbing a bank start to come out.
Once again, Pacino pulls out a superb performance, and it's his energy that really keeps this film flowing. He's a huge ball of action, and it's great to see his character slowly lose control of the heist situation.
The film slightly drags two thirds of the way in when a lot of conversation is conducted over a telephone, and the action slows down to a stillness. But it isn't long before it picks up again for the finale.
Everything that could happen does happen in that bank, and you really feel for Pacino's character and his partner. You want them to succeed, but then they are breaking the law, so should they be allowed to get away with it? Exciting and nail biting, this was brilliant entertainment I would recommend to anyone.

I am utterly convinced that this is Pacino's best performance, to the point where nobody could convince me otherwise! This film is literally brimming with energy and the acting is pretty much impeccable. It's got drama, humour, and a poignant ending. You end up feeling like you knew the central characters, particularly Pacino's ever optimistic Sonny. Watch this at least once, you won't regret it.

The blu ray is excellent both in the hd transfer and the rich extra.
The film is one of Lumet's best and most relevant ones, inspiring all the bank robberies that will follow in cinema history (from Code Swordfish to Inside Men) and representing one of the most original and impressive film from the Seventies. Lumet adopts an almost theatrical approach (all set in the same place from start to end) but shows as well all his cinematic skills, from editing to photography, from script to acting direction, to convey the sense of disorientation, confusion, anger, and potential chaos of those times.
Like it is not enough, there is also an original and surprising gay story, that contribute to make the film even more dramatic.
Despite it all, the film has also a surreal, ironic, almost mocking side that make the story entertaining and yet even more effective, because as it takes you up with a smile then it brings you down, back to the ongoing tragedy.
Pacino and Cazale give one of their best performances.

This film, based on a true story, concerns two inept bank robbers, Sal and Sonny, played by John Cazale, and Al Pacino respectivly. Soon after they have robbed a bank of $1100 dollars, for, thats all thats in there, the money having been picked up earlier that day, it is surrounded by 250 police, and news helicoptors hovering above, and the pair soon realise that escape is impossible. So they lock themselves in with employees of the bank, who then become their hostages, and there is a long stand off, as police try to negotiate with them.
You get drawn into this film almost immediately, as the characters are totally convincing. It then goes on to delve into Sonny's life and why he needed the money. This film shows the brilliance of Al Pacino's acting abillities, and the signs were there of what he would go onto achieve in his later career, he is now one of the best actors ever.
The transfer is in the film's original ratio of 1.85:1. Picture Quality for this release is good, the definition is pin sharp, and there are no problems with the mono soundtrack.
