    Favorite Answer

    12 Angry Men

    Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

    I can't choose between them, I love both these movies. Although I suppose '12 Angry Men' is THE classic and 'Before the Devil Knows You're Dead' is very bleak in places. But outstanding!

    BQ: I'd probably still be in work! But I'd buy lots of cakes for everyone to share :)

    When I realized that Sidney Lumet made two really great movies spanning FIFTY YEARS (12 Angry Men, '57, and Before the Devils Knows You're Dead, '07) I went on a binge watching many of the ones in between: Running on Empty, The Verdict, Pawnbroker, Long Day's Journey into Night, Serpico, and Find Me Guilty. There's two others I'd already seen - Dog Day Afternoon and Network.

    Favorite is not a surprise: Dog Day Afternoon.

    One I think is underrated is Find Me Guilty. Serpico was a little overrated.

    If it was my birthday today I'd watch a couple more.

    Hands down my favorite Lumet movie is 12 Angry Men. It's just a brilliant film. From the direction to the cinematography to the acting and the script. All great. Even more impressive: it was Lumet's feature film directorial debut. Now THAT is a debut.

    BQ: Sleeping. I'm in serious need of some after very few hours of sleep over the last couple days lol
