    A compassionate, thrilling true-crime drama. Pacino, in a tour-de-force Oscar-nominated performance, and Cazale, in a Golden-Globe-nominated role, plot to rob a bank that turns into a media circus. Durning was nominated for a Golden Globe as the cop who tries to appease Pacino and Sarandon gives an Oscar-nominated performance as Pacino's husband and motivation for the robbery. The Oscar-winning story and Lumet's direction add intensity and humour to the plot. An overall excellent film about the media's infatuation with crime. I give it a 5/5.

  • Four stars for acting!

    Al Pacino received his fourth Academy Award nomination in four consecutive years for this film and it is so easy to see why. He is superb in this role as Sonny and few people know this is the telling of a real life attempted bank robbery in New York just three years prior to this film. I loved seeing the great John Cazale as Pacino's co-star here. Under the direction of the fantastic Sidney Lumet, the stars excel in this film. Charles Durning as the detective who tries to negotiate with Sonny and Sal is also great. I've seen this film at least a dozen times since it was released and I am still always amazed at how good it really is. Do see this film! It is truly and essential!
