Dog Day Afternoon 1975

From Amazon: A gripping true crime yarn, a juicy slice of overheated New York atmosphere, and a splendid showcase for its young actors, Dog Day Afternoon is a minor classic of the 1970s. The opening montage of New York street life (set to Elton John's lazy "Amoreena") establishes the oppressive mood of a scorching afternoon in the city with such immediacy that you can almost smell the garbage baking in the sun and the water from the hydrants evaporating from the sizzling pavement.

Dog Day Afternoon Movie Review by Tony (3/1/2006)

Sidney Lumet's "Dog Day Afternoon" is an example of what a film is about, and what a film is REALLY about.
