And the best Sidney Lumet movie is…
Damn right it is. Would have been my vote as well, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s in my Top Ten, either. Really gotta watch this again some time and review the hell out of it. One of the best scripts ever written.
But then again, if there’s anything to be said about Lumet, it’s that the guy had one truly amazing career behind the camera. Not only that, but the rate at which he was putting out movies was flat-out nuts. Dude was operating at Woody Allen’s pace for a while there, and that, boys and girls, is no easy feat. 12 Angry Men is a hard one to top, but seriously, these are all phenomenal movies (even if I can’t vouch for The Wiz). If you haven’t seen ’em, check ’em out, and you will understand how awesome Lumet will always be.
Good voting, gang.
