Two great 70's crime films. Gritty, realistic, passionate. Character studies of men who get caught up in their worlds of sin and violence. It's a really tough call. Dog Day has a touch more polish, but even in Mean Street Scorsese's virtuosity is on display. Err... Ummm... ARGHH!!! Damn you flickchart!
THAT MOTHERFUCKER HAS THE SAME AVATAR AS ME. AND A SUPERIOR NAME. Also, Dog Day Afternoon is a classic. Mean Streets 'aint. Sorry.
Crime doesn't pay. Dog Day Afternoon is great. I love how the siege situation just sprials out of anyone's control into something that has a life of its own. Mean Streets is interesting, but the characters fail to spring to life in the way that Sonny and Sal do. Dog Day Afternoon wins.
Mean Streets is slower paced and leaves you with bad taste in your mouth.
For that reason it wins by a nose!
mean sreets winssssss
Dog Day does it for me. The more coherent.
Dog Day Afternoon in a big way here...Mean Streets is pretty awful.
Pacino singlehandedly beats Scorsese/De Niro on this one.
I wouldn't say Mean Streets is awful, but Dog Dag Afternoon is the CLEAR winner. Yay for high pitched Pacino.
Hay! Dog Dag Afternoon! That was unintentional.
