If you're into documentaries or love the film "Dog Day Afternoon," you'll want to catch "The Dog" tonight at the Loft:
Here's what I wrote in Cinema Showdown this week:
Also at the Loft this week, an one-off screening of "The Dog," a documentary about John Wojtowicz, the real-life inspiration behind the character played by Al Pacino in "Dog Day Afternoon." Filmed over 10 years and including footage of the robbery that made him infamous, the documentary touches upon the gay liberation movement of the era and the incredibly unique character Wojtowicz was. "The Dog" shows on Monday, September 8 at 7 p.m. with tickets also at regular admission prices.
If you're looking for something a little racier and less thought-provoking (no judgement here), Roger Corman's "Stripped to Kill," showing tonight at 8 p.m. (admission $3) might be more your thing:
Keep in mind this film stars both Norman Fell (Mr. Roper from "Three's Company") AND Greg Evigan (of "B.J. and the Bear" and "My Two Dads" fame). Yes, both of them. IN THE SAME MOVIE.
