The Dog Gets His Day: A Review Of THE DOG Comments (0)

The-dog_torontoThe Dog candidly self-identifies as a pervert in the movie. A romantic one.

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: ***1/2 out of ****

The-Dog

John “The Dog” Wojtowicz never had any regrets, but he seems to have created quite a few on the path of his life, which began in 1945, peaked when he robbed a bank to pay for his lover's sex-change operation in 1972 and ended in 2006.

The Dog's bank robbery inspired the critically acclaimed film Dog Day Afternoon (1975) starring Al Pacino, and now has inspired another film, his personality apparently having been too big for just the one. (In fact, this is the third documentary on his life.)

Dog-Day-AfternoonService in Vietnam turned him from a Goldwater Republican to an anti-Establishment law-breaker.

In the affectionately sympathetic new documentary The Dog, directed (from 2002 until recently—making it almost like the Boyhood of gay stick-up men) by Allison Berg and Frank Keraudren, Wojtowicz lives on via his larger-than-life, bigger-than-the-big-screen ego, captured in multiple interviews. He is rendered in ways both charming and unsettling. To the film's credit, as much as it roots for the guy, it doesn't shy away from his darkness.

Brad told me he hopes the film shows people that while, yes, they are a gay couple, they are also simply a couple, with all the same ups and downs of any other couple. He also marveled of George's late-in-life career resurgence, saying:
