R.I.P. Sidney Lumet


Sidney Lumet (n. 25 iunie 1924 — d. 9 aprilie 2011) a fost un regizor de film american cu peste 50 de filme printre care 12 Angry Men (1957), Serpico (1973), După-amiază de câine (1975), Network (1976) şi Verdictul (1982), filme pentru care a fost nominalizat la Premiul Oscar pentru Cel mai Bun Regizor, cu excepţia lui Serpico.
Conform Encyclopedia of Hollywood, Lumet este unul dintre cei mai prolifici regizori ai erei moderne realizând, în medie, mai mult de un film pe an de la debutul său regizoral în 1957.Este recunoscut pentru abilitatea de a atrage actori mari în proiectele sale.
Una dintre temele sale constante pe parcursul carierei a fost "fragilitatea justiţiei şi a poliţiei şi corupţia din cadrul lor" conform Biographical Dictionary of Film al lui Thomson.


Lumet a început ca regizor off-Broadway, devenind apoi un foarte eficient regizor de film. Primul său film se numără şi printre cele mai reuşite din cariera lui: un film bine jucat şi scris, un adevărat "film problematic", 12 Angry Men (1957). De-atunci Lumet şi-a împărţit energia în realizarea altor filme de acet gen dar şi a unor adaptări după piese de teatru şi romane. Ca rezultat al regiei filmului 12 Angry Men, este responsabil pentru îndrumarea primului val de regizori care au făcut trecerea de la televiziune la film. În 2005 Lumet a primit un premiu Oscar pentru Întreaga Activitate pentru "serviciile briliante aduse scenariştilor, actorilor şi artei filmului".
