With the unexpected passing of one of the giants of cinema yesterday, I’m following the lead of my fellow bloggers by putting together a list of my favorite films by the late Mr. Sidney Lumet (1924 – 2011). I also recommend the posts of Bryce, J.D., Jeremy, and Edward as an example of some of the truly wonderful tributes being paid to this a one-of-a-kind filmmaker. Surely, I am not the first to say this, but Lumet primarily impacted my social and moral conscience through the medium of film, and that can never be diminished. He will genuinely and greatly be missed. May he rest in peace.
