Dog Day Afternoon
(Sidney Lumet, 1975). Based on a real incident that occurred in 1972, this hilarious, often moving portrait of an incompetent unlikely gay bank robber who needs money to finance a sex-change operation for his lover scores on character detail and nuance. Al Pacino does a brilliantly feral turn in the lead role.
