Dog Day Afternoon (DVD) (Rpkg)
Academy Award winner Al Pacino robs a bank to pay for a sex-change operation for his lover, Leon (Chris Sarandon). Based on a true story. On one of the hottest days of August 1972, three amateur bank robbers plan to hold up a Brooklyn bank. A nice simple robbery: Walk in, take the money, and run. Unfortunately, the supposedly uncomplicated heist suddenly becomes a bizarre nightmare as everything that could go wrong does.]]>

Notice how well Lumet keeps the set getting dingy over time. It is nice, as is the lighting which goes from flourescent harshness to cold night.
Almost 50 years after Stonewall, almost 40 years after its release, "Dog Day Afternoon" brings us deftly back and presents a narrative more compelling than it seemed wehn first released.
And, fans ... it's a 'Two-Disc Special Edition': with a '30th.- Anniversary' Documentary and Commentary by the Director. I must admit, I didn't view this part but I have viewed the movie several times and I am a HUGE Al Pacino fan!
I bought it for it's price and fast service. I found both in this seller. In other words, I would do business with them again!!
negative is the plethora of "F- Bombs" throughout the movie. Why Hollywood insists on these scripts is a mystery to me.
