RIP Sidney Lumet
Some very sad news: one of my favorite directors of all time is the great Sidney Lumet who did such classics as Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Network, Murder on the Orient Express, The Verdict, 12 Angry Men, and Before the Devil Knows You're Dead died of lymphoma last night or early this morning. He had been nominated for five Oscars (and was wrongly robbed of at least one or two in my opinion), and was a legend that will be forever remembered. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Rest in peace old friend.
