Dog Day Afternoon (1975)

Sonny Wortzik and his friend Sal rob a Brooklyn bank one hot summer afternoon to pay for Sonny’s boyfriend Leon’s sex change operation. But before he can get the money and leave, he gets an unexpected phone call from Police Captain Moretti, who tells him the place is surrounded by the city’s entire police force. So having few options under the circumstances, Sonny demands an escort to the airport and a plane so he and Sal can go out of the country. In exchange, he will release hostages. One of the best 70′s films, and one of Pacino’s greatest performances. Starring Al Pacino, John Cazale, Charles Durning, Chris Sarandon 9/10
