Dog Day Afternoon

Deeper View Out of all the non Movies Brats of the New Hollywood of the 1970s, Sidney Lumet stands head and shoulders above the rest. The director, who had early success in his career with 12 Angry Men, fell into something of a funk in during the 1960s, with the notable exception of The Hill, it wasn’t until the early 1970s that Lumet came into his own, hitting a winning streak of films that made him one of the all time great American filmmakers. And Dog Day Afternoon may well be his undefeated masterpiece. And that is saying something when you take into account he also made Serpico, Network and The Wiz.

**Synopsis ** Based on an incredible 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.”
