      Sidney Lumet is perhaps one of the most underrated american directors in my opinion with great films like 12 Angry Men, Serpico and Long Day’s Journey Into Night on his account. Dog Day Afternoon shows Al Pacino in one of his major

      roles as a bank robber, and also John Cazale as his confused partner. The two of them goes to a bank and takes hostages when they face the fact that there is no money in the bank. However, it is quite clear ...

      • from the beginning that these man are not evil enough to go through with any harm against the hostages, and outside a media circus is quickly rising. The police are dealing with the situation rather poorly, and the hostages are soon the
        sympathize with Al Pacino, which goes out to media directly and makes Pacino turn out like some anti-hero. The story is very, very engaging and powerful, brilliantly acted, and has perhaps to most shocking end I’ve ever experienced. Truly one of Lumet’s finest pieces.
