The Dog (2013)

Director(s): Allison Berg, Frank Keraudren. 100 min. Not Rated. Documentary.

John Wojtowicz, the homosexual who robbed a bank to finance his lover's sex-change operation, and whom Al Pacino's role in Dog Day Afternoon was based upon. This documentary nicely illustrates how to separate Hollywood glamour, from real-life filth. Pacino is a great artist with a glorious turn in a well-directed movie; Wojtowicz is just a petty low-life criminal whom even gay communities avoided, and after all these years, is still proud and thinks he won. And it's pathetic that this film provides him a microphone to broadcast his small mind. You can't pull a Godfather fascination in real life.
