Meep Pic Of The Week: Sidney Lumet Edition
To honor one of my favorite filmmakers who just passed away this week, and instead of just giving you just 1 Pic Of The Week (honestly, how can I only choose one of his great films?) I present you with a list of 10 of my favorite Sidney Lumet films.
It was pretty hard narrowing it down to 10. I had to leave off movies that I quite liked... The Pawnbroker, The Fugitive Kind, Garbo Talks, Q&A, Long Day's Journey Into Night, Equus, Murder On The Orient Express and the very underrated The Morning After.
All excellent films that deserve to be watched. Lumet was a versatile filmmaker who tried it all, always attempting to provoke thought in his audience and to entertain them as well.
