DOG DAY AFTERNOON
Sunday, July 19
(1975, Sidney Lumet) As a scorcher unravels from day to night in Brooklyn, the motive for Sonny Wortzik’s (Al Pacino) botched bank robbery/hostage taking is revealed to be the funding of his second (male) wife’s sex-change operation — based on an actual case. Approx. 125 min. DCP.
“The most flamboyant of Lumet’s New York movies.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
