RIP Sidney Lumet

April 9, 2011

I still haven’t seen a lot of Lumet’s work — just NETWORK and THE WIZ — but even just between those and his fantastic book I know that we’ve lost a giant of filmmaking, who was still active as recent as 2007, at the age of 82. I’ll be satisfied with my career if I can make movies half as good for half as long as Lumet did.

    Since you posted about him I’ve been reading his book. I remember watching Dog Day Afternoon (my mom has always had a thing for Al Pacino) and during college I studied 12 Angry Men. His films were just…. good. Not much else I can say.
