Dir. Sidney Lumet. 1975, 125 mins. 35mm. With Al Pacino, John Cazale. Pacino gives his career performance in what Vincent Canby called Sidney Lumet’s “most accurate, most flamboyant New York movie.” Based on a bizarre 1972 bank robbery staged blocks from the movie’s Brooklyn location, Dog Day Afternoon might be seen as the first Fun City period film; it was shot after John Lindsay had left office and released a month before the legendary Daily News headline: “Ford to City: Drop Dead.”
