Hoezo in KINO

“ATTICA! ATTICA! ATTICA!” Sidney Lumet’s first installment of his magnificent double hit on society’s ever increasing sensationalization through the media (a year later he would direct Network) is based on a true story. Sonny, a Vietnam vet, his trans-lover and a third accomplice decide to rob a Brooklyn bank in broad daylight. What ensues is a hostage situation exploding into a media circus no one seems to control. Al Pacino and John Cazale are perfect together (like they were in The Godfather films) as partners in crime attempting to raise funds for a sex operation and way in over their heads from the get-go. English language without subtitles.
