12 Angry Men

monkeyrating: 9/10

genre: drama

waddabout: a single man with a differing perspective about a boy on trial for murder debates in support of his view with the rest of the jury - who are convinced on pronouncing the boy 'guilty'.

isay: if drama ever was as good as sex - this would be the sheer example of it! of course the movie is a great play that is perfect in classic theatre - but the movie itself is a crash course in character development, script writing, and ofcourse dialogue writing! add to that the awesomeness of the fact that its all set in a single room - kabooooom! film genius!

monkeyrespect to: Director Sidney Lumet and writer Reginald Rose - both couldnt have done it without each other. the words and the essense of the story is woven into a drama that is captured in every sense perfectly. Sidney has brought forth even the underlying issues of the characters to the screen is sheer genius at work!

trivia note: as the shooting progressed, the director purposely switched to lenses of longer focal lengths to create a sense of claustrophobia in the room!
