06.26.06Paramount So I heard Find Me Guilty was pretty mediocre... and Lumet hasn't made an undeniably good movie in 14 years... but you know... 12 Angry Men. Network. Serpico. Dog Day Afternoon. If someone made just one of those they would go down in film history books. All four means you can make mediocre movies for the rest of your life if you give us something like The Verdict once every decade or so.

Not much I can say about this movie that hasn't already been said... it was great to see on a big screen. That shot at the beginning with the trash truck on the sidewalk makes NYC look so goddamn dirty... more trash in the gutters than in the cans. Unbelievable... NYC in the 70s is like a different world...
