Critic Reviews for By Sidney Lumet

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (4)

  • The film is fascinating and important as it is, and Buirski made the right decision in focusing largely on the Anker interviews with Lumet.

    January 3, 2017 | Full Review…
  • [Lumet] had come to understand how some in Hollywood had ended up cooperating with investigators and giving them names. A characteristically blunt assessment of reality-a kind of which this portrait is full, as it is of warmth and wit.

    December 29, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It's the kind of documentary that might serve as a perfect introduction to Lumet's work; when it's done, you want to watch all of these films immediately.

    December 28, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It allows Lumet to remind us, in his own voice, of the passion in his ostensible dispassion - the way he deftly subsumed self-expression within the brisk rhythms of his material and the superb performances of his actors.

    November 3, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The abundance of clips here are deftly chosen and play remarkably well out of context.

    October 28, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It is beautifully constructed, not as a chronological biography of a directorial legend but as a thematic exploration of his work.
