Sidney Lumet, one of the great directors to come out of television in the 1950s, has died. He was 86. A New York legend, he was the man behind the camera for classics like “12 Angry Men,” “Long Day’s Journey Into Night,” “Serpico,” “Dog Day Afternoon,” “Network” and “The Verdict.”

Don't forget one of the very best films of all-time , Fail Safe. I defy anyone not be able t o watch the ending and not sit in stunned silence. And just a few years ago, he directed a terrific film, Before The Devil Knows You're Dead.
 Eh, Fail Safe is pretty good (Lumet's direction is excellent) but it's no Dr. Strangelove ...
Before the Devil Knows You're Dead is a fantastic film, to think he directed something like that at 83 ...
I think I'll have to pull a Lumet marathon tonite, RIP Sidney.
2) He made a lot of stinkers but he's got a handful of classics and some very good ones inbetween.
