  1. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    These brown hued 70's New York thrillers are always so much fun, especially in their portrayal of eccentric characters stuck in the mud somehow. This might have more influence on the modern thriller than you think.

  5. Malt Frisky's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    Like a nervous laugh when you know something is going to go terribly wrong it's just a case of when it's going to happen, the lack of a musical score particularly enhances that feeling. The acting is outstanding on all fronts but this is Pacino at his absolute peak. We find out about the characters lives as the film continues and it just gets more bizarre and engrossing as the film reaches it's tense conclusion.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    >>> Une remarquable prestation d'Al Pacino, en petit truand sympathique et paumé, dans un film fort bien ficelé et profondément humain. Il est vrai que Sidney Lumet a rarement déçu son public (bien au contraire). www.cinefiches.com

  11. yovargas's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    Such a simple premise - bank robbers get trapped in a bank surrounded by cops and we spend the whole movie watching them negotiate how they're going to get out. That's pretty much the whole thing but the movie finds so many fascinating layers to the drama that it is never any less than gripping. It helps that Pacino gives possibly the best performance of his career making it one of the best of all time. It gets a B+.

  12. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    Spenti tutti gli allarmi, rimarrete intrappolati con degli eccentrici rapinatori in una piccola banca della Grande Mela, mentre prende forma uno dei colpi più assurdi della storia del crimine. Tra scene al limite del buffonesco e trattative surreali, l'intera rapina si snoda leggera per tutta la sua durata, risultando in un film decisamente godibile per ogni tipo di palato. Al Pacino è sorprendentemente bravo.

  13. Marjan Mar's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    The things we won't do for love... I'd climb a mountain if I had to...And rob a bank so I could have you, you, you, you... Superb performance by Mr Pacino.

  14. Dalibor's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    Starting and finishing safely within boundaries of thriller genre, section bank-robbing, in its core a deeply human story, politically and socially engaged in a relating common-folk way. Tension between self-depreciating insecure individual(s) and cold-blooded obeying collectivism is reminiscent to many of Lumet's former and later movies. This one is highlighted by brilliant acting and unusual changes of pace.

  15. João R's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    It's not your typical hostage situation movie - its undertone humour and the "unantencional" way its delivered, the outside crowd and the political issues and a very solid cast make it stand-out. Even so, personally, it don't understand the hype.

  16. SpacePirate's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    Further proof the 70s were the last great decade of American filmmaking. Pacino is at his peak, Lumet also in his prime, and just great pacing and chemistry throughout. One of the best of the decade

  18. bartkl's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    In a way this concept has been done many times, but never like this. There's a clear political tone in the crowd's admiration of Sonny, particularly his stance on "Attica". Unbelievable acting by particularly Al Pacino, and a lovely, subtle suspense throughout this clean, great production. It was a great watch recommended for just about anyone.

    I'm a fuck-up and I'm an outcast. If you get near me you're gonna get it- you're gonna get fucked over and fucked out.

  24. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Dog Day Afternoon

    ... and a half. Imagine it's 1975, you're in the cinema and you see a film like this! It must have been quite a punch. It still is! Lumet was a grandmaster who resisted the stupidity and artificiality of all the Airport and Earthquake cinematic nightmares of the time. Special credits to the crowd and the pizza boy!
