Sidney Lumet 1957

Sidney Lumet is to directing what Gregg Maddux was to pitching.  The whole movie takes place in the jury room, yet it feels like a movie, rather than a filmed play, because Sidney Lumet does the little things very very well – especially lighting, the subtle use of camera movement and directing actors for film. He’s a smart filmmaker who (with a few exceptions) doesn’t take big risks, but doesn’t make many mistakes either.
