12 Angry Men (Twelve Angry Men) Reviews
very nice how Lumet never showed the voting the same way twice. they voted a bunch of times and each time the jurors were captured a different way.
henry fonda never telegraphs. he discovers everything and never has a secret a foreshadow. its not his job. he leaves it to the director and its a great and difficult task to do. actors cant control themselves from telegraphing because they read the script, they gave the secret and its jut to seductive and fun. but its a detriment to the story. fonda rises above as all actors should.
The gripping dialogue, directing, and performances truly make 12 Angry Men one of the best, if not the best court room film.
I would also recommend watching the movie with a basic understanding of negotiation. I had to watch this movie as part of a class assignment and the book "Getting To Yes" was a required read. 12 Angry Men provided excellent fodder for me to understand how negotiation techniques could be applied in a fun and relaxing way! I would highly recommend this combination of Getting to Yes and 12 Angry Men for those interested!
