Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 339: Mon Dec 5

Dog Day Afternoon (Lumet, 1975): Picturehouse Central, 7pm



American actress Clea Duvall has curated a short season of queer films for Picturehouse Central cinema that are meaningful to her, the 'Out at Central' season. You can find the full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
One of Sidney Lumet's best jobs of directing (1975) and one of Al Pacino's best performances (as a bisexual bank robber) come together in a populist thriller with lots of New York juice. Its details are stronger than its structure—the film loses some of its energy before the end—but it's an astonishing fusion of suspense and character, powered by superior ensemble acting.
Jonathan Rosenbaum

Here (and above) is the trailer.
