The Dog

– The illusonal self confidence of John Wojtowicz, that presents himself as someone very important.
– The ambiguous presence of the mother, that played a crucial role in the shaping of John’s character.
– The whole documentary is very one-sided, revealing only the mad personality of John, without stating real life facts: that he robbed a bank holding hostages!
– The fact that, even 40 years later, he made money by signing autographs and taking pictures outside the bank he robbed.
– The stunning resemblance of John, on the archive photos during the robbery, with Al Pacino, that played his character in the film “Dog Day Afternoon”.
