R.I.P. Sidney Lumet
Dog Day Afternoon is one of my favorite movies ever. (and I scored a used copy at Nice Price last year for $3) Love those it all happens in one day movies and this is one of the best I think (along with Do The Right Thing)
I especially love the ending, the sound of the jets at the airport adding all that tension and you just know something bad is about to happen.
The middle is darn good too.
And how’s this for a beginning….
