Cinema Dissection: "Dog Day Afternoon" With Robert Horton says
Sidney Lumet's 1975 masterpiece explores a bank heist gone wrong with an anti-establishment commentary. Featuring incredible performances by Al Pacino and John Cazale, the film is also remarkable in it's craft as Lumet ratchets up the tension while firmly immersing the audience in the human stories at the center of the film. Using efficient camerawork, crackerjack editing, and a soundtrack which balances musical score and diegetic sound, “Dog Day Afternoon” is a 70's classic that deserves it's place under our Cinema Dissection microscope with film educator Sandy Cioffi facilitating.

About Cinema Dissection
Cinema Dissection affords film lovers an exciting opportunity to dig deeper into the films that they love. Inspired by Roger Ebert's annual Cinema Interruptus in Boulder, CO, attendees will participate with a facilitator in a six hour scene-by-scene, and sometimes shot-by-shot, deconstruction of the featured film. While the facilitator will certainly share their thoughts, anyone in the audience may call out ‘Stop' and either ask a question of the group or make an observation around a certain shot or moment in the film.

Note: Participants are recommended to have seen "Dog Day Afternoon" in advance of the session. We will not be screening the film in it's entirety before the dissection begins.
