American Cool: DOG DAY AFTERNOON
March 17 @ 7:00 pm
‘American Cool’ is a new series dedicated to examining the pathology of Hollywood’s finest countercultural icons. Whether they’re the neglected souls led astray by the trappings of patriarchy and capitalism or the ostensibly noble ones who benefit from the system, they have one thing in common: they’re a joy to watch.
“Dog Day Afternoon is, in the whole as well as the parts, filmmaking at its best.” – Variety
“It speaks to a particular moment in an edgy early 1970s New York City — a post-Stonewall city of people figuring out identities, and bubbling with anti-establishment anger and a nascent culture of exploitation media.” – Salt Lake City Weekly
“One of Sidney Lumet’s best jobs of directing and one of Al Pacino’s best performances.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum
Dir. Sidney Lumet. 1975. 125 min.
