61. 12 Angry Men

12 Angry Men (1957)
Directed by Sidney Lumet

I’ve always enjoyed this film from the first time I saw it in Middle School English class. There won’t be much of a write-up here because I’m not exactly sure what to say outside of listing off superlatives. The acting is fantastic with everyone giving memorable performances, Lee Cobb and Fonda giving truly standout ones. If you haven’t seen it, don’t let the single setting or the year of the film stop you, it’s an intense drama that still speaks powerful to modern day issues.
