Critic Reviews of "Dog Day Afternoon"Chicago ReaderApril 27, 2009
Enjoyable and even exciting at the start, Dog Day Afternoon degenerates into frustration and tedium toward nightfall -- an experience no less painful for the audience than for the actors.Chicago ReaderApril 27, 2009
One of Sidney Lumet's best jobs of directing and one of Al Pacino's best performances (as a bisexual bank robber) come together in a populist thriller with lots of New York juiceTIME MagazineAugust 24, 2008
[Pacino] gives an electric performance, charged with a lunatic energy that expertly captures the weird blend of confidence and self-deprecation (if not hatred) that marks the paranoid syndrome.VarietyAugust 24, 2008
Dog Day Afternoon is, in the whole as well as the parts, filmmaking at its best.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
The film's strength lies in its depiction of surfaces, lacking the visual or intellectual imagination to go beyond its shrewd social and psychological observations and its moments of absurdist humour.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
It's beautifully acted by performers who appear to have grown up on the city's sidewalks in the heat and hopelessness of an endless midsummer.Antagony & EcstasyJanuary 02, 2016
Presents a remarkable collection of human beings behaving under stress.Salt Lake City WeeklyOctober 19, 2015
[Dog Day Afternoon] 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.ColeSmithey.comMay 30, 2011
As much as it is about a deeply troubled individual, "Dog Day Afternoon" is about a shift toward exploitation in the American media via live television.Cinema SightApril 11, 2011
Strong performances and forward-thinking situations make this political thriller an exceptionally vibrant experience.Video-Reviewmaster.comOctober 23, 2008
Fine, but overrated Pacino vehicle directed by Lumet.
