Academy Award Winner Al Pacino robs a bank to pay for a sex-change operation for his lover, Leon (Chris Sarandon). Based on a true story. On one of the hottest days of August 1972, three amateur bank robbers plan to hold up a Brooklyn bank. A nice simple robbery: Walk in, take the money, and run. Unfortunately, the supposedly uncomplicated heist suddenly becomes a bizarre nightmare as everything that could go wrong does.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Framed by great work from director Sidney Lumet and fueled by a gripping performance from Al Pacino, Dog Day Afternoon offers a finely detailed snapshot of people in crisis with tension-soaked drama shaded in black humor.
Dog Day Afternoon is, in the whole as well as the parts, filmmaking at its best.
