Re: Movies Seen in 2012


97. 12 Angry Men (A+)

Barnes and Noble's latest sale is a good time to stock up on Criterions. In this case, finally a chance to see Sidney Lumet's 1957 directorial debut. Apart from a few moments with the pro-conviction jurors that seem a little obvious, it holds up exceptionally well 55 years after it was made. One of those movies that calls into question the frequent practice of describing confined films as "uncinematic".
