Dog Day Afternoon



Filed under : About.com, War

Al Pacino delivered the best performance of his career in Sidney Lumet’s 1975 classic that combined a thrilling real-life bank heist and hostage situation with searing social commentary on police brutality and the three-ring circus mentality of the media. It starred Al Pacino as Sonny Wortzik, a desperate Vietnam War veteran who tries robbing a Chase Manhattan bank in Brooklyn. Pacino earned an Oscar nomination for Best Actor, Lumet received a nod for Best Director, and the film itself was up for Best Picture.
