Critic Reviews for By Sidney Lumet
The film is fascinating and important as it is, and Buirski made the right decision in focusing largely on the Anker interviews with Lumet.
[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.
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.
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.
The abundance of clips here are deftly chosen and play remarkably well out of context.
