Dog Day Afternoon

Dog Day Afternoon ★★★★½

Thrilling, tense and funny in all the right amounts, with subtle and smart anti-establishment nods, this movie was a blast. You can see its influence on so many movies after - the most recent one i'd compare to is Uncut Gems, in the way it combines nail-bitting energy with intimate character moments. Sidney Lumet is a genius and so is Al Pacino, man what a performance, there wasn't a single second where i didn't believed every word he spoke with that thick accent.
