From 1957 and first-time director Sidney Lumet, here's the great jury-room drama about the dynamic -- and potentially lethal -- relationship between guilt, suspicion, and prejudice.

Sidney Lumet... effectively modulates the drama without ever taking the camera out of the jury room until the verdict is in and the jury is out.

Thoroughly engaging, there is nothing dated or corny in Reginald Rose's intensely knowing screenplay and Lumet's energetic direction.

12 Angry Men is a flawless, brilliant, intense portrayal of our justice system at work, as relevant today as it was during its 1957 release.
