The Films of Sidney Lumet:
Cinema of Conscience
Term 3: 17 April - 5 June
Tutor: David Hayes
With nearly seventy titles to his credits, Sidney Lumet is regarded as one of the most prolific American directors of his generation. His directing career stretched well over fifty years with his movies covering some of the most contentious issues of their time. They rank amongst some of the most influential in American filmmaking. Lumet's themes of youthful idealism beaten down by corruption and the hopelessness of inept social institutions are quietly devastating in their humanism. The season will screen some of his masterpieces including 12 Angry Men, Dog Day Afternoon and The Verdict.
