Long Live Lumet!

The movie industry lost a legend today with the passing of film director, Sidney Lumet. Known for his powerhouse courtroom dramas and just flat-out Hollywood classics like 12 Angry Men, Network, and Dog Day Afternoon, Lumet worked with the best actors of his day and even finished on a high note with his last film, the much-underappreciated dysfunctional family heist flick, Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead.

Look Who’s Talking

Considering the recent NBC-Conan O’Brien/Jay Leno debacle, I thought I would put up the posters of my favorite talk show-themed movies, The King of Comedy, Talk Radio, and Network. (Unfortunately, the “mad as hell”-speech is actually quite timely.)
