Dog Day Afternoon

Dog Day Afternoon ★★★★★

Good Movies? I’ve heard of them.

Watching this with a crowd made me realize just how hilarious it is. It’s not comedy and drama from moment to moment, but comedy and drama existing within the same moment. You’re laughing while on the edge of your seat. Kathryn Hahn and Tamara Jenkins did a Q&A after (you read that right) and both praised the choreography of the ensemble. The women in the bank, the army of cops, the crowds behind the barriers — everyone was directed just right. What a truly fascinating look at human behavior, from any and every direction.
