Dog Day Afternoon

Dog Day Afternoon ★★★★★

I think what sets this apart from the rest of my all-time top 10 is that it's so organic. The story unfolds organically, the humour is organic, and the humanity is organic. It's a fully fleshed-out film that is cinema to me. The deal-sealer is the moment when Sonny tells the media over the phone "We're entertainment!" and Miriam waves, delighted by her 15 minutes of fame, and ultimately, her screen portrayal.
