    Perfect score. Exactly! 12 Angry Men is one of my favorite movies of all-time. Damn near perfect. What makes it even more remarkable is that it is Lumet’s directorial debut.

    Everything about this movie was great. Lumet truly did an outstanding job with it too. Everything from the cinematography to the story to the acting and the performance Lumet got out of his actors. I can never say enough about this movie.

    I had actually not seen this film until last week, on the day Mr. Lumet passed away. It is a bit of a morbid thing to do but what better time to jump into this fascinating picture. They just don’t make them like this anymore.

    This is on my Top 10 list for sure. The character acting is superb each man plies his craft perfectly. The directing, cinematography, writing and even the music all come together on this one. Yes, they don’t make them like this anymore. I don’t think it morbid at all to look up a recently decesed persons work, I think it is what they would hope you would do. Love it, thanks for the review!

    Indeed. Not morbid at all I don’t think. No different than gathering around remembering the good times with a loved one when they pass.

    In fact, I might go back to rewatch this (for like the 100th time) again soon.

    I’m not sure I’d say they don’t make them like this anymore. Just few and far between. Of course, a movie of this caliber and perfection was few and far between, period. Just a brilliant film. I can’t praise it enough.

    I’m glad you all don’t think it is morbid. I tend to agree with you but some people have said otherwise. I feel it the perfect way to honour the life by admiring the art.
