Some of the dark humor, interaction with the hostages and characterization in this movie made it really good. Very little violence, but tense. I liked the story a lot.

I love this movie with Al Pacino for his Intensity and tension of a robbery bank goes wrong. Very good movie in my opinion.

Outstanding performances by Al Pacino and John Cazale in this fraught hostage/ bank hold up picture.

made me look up Sidney Lumet and place holds on a few more of his films. and this is a great story ; a man moved by love rage and frustration to commit a desperate act and see it through to the end. he doesn't give up on that nor the people in his life. unfortunately his wife and mother are hysterical dopes in this telling, but poignant that he married the same kind of woman as his mother.

One of the great screen performances by Al Pacino early in his career- the film is a claustrophobic maelstrom of tension.

The library has copies of the new edition of this classic movie which, so far, seem to be in fine condition.

Dog Day Afternoon is one of the great movies of the 1970s, and Pacino's intense performance is one of the greatest in movie history. He runs an amazing gamut of emotions, and eventually tears your heart out. All of the supporting cast is also excellent, especially Chris Sarandon as Leon. This is method acting at its finest.
