12 Angry Men
04/21/10 at 11:01 PM by Adrian Villagomez


A black and white film focusing on twelve men in a room, simply talking. There's a bit of shoving, and some physical demonstrations, but as far as production value is concerned, 12 Angry Men is as bareboned as dramas come. I have to admit the set-up for this 1957 film doesn't sound too enticing, but it's almost unbelievable how well 12 Angry Men has aged. The dialogue, the blocking, the wit of the insults (I laughed out loud and "ooooh'd" on multiple occasions), the production minimalism - it's all film gold. It's a real shame that this film didn't win Best Picture; I'd pick it over The Bridge on the River Kwai. I wonder if this tale of twelve jurors debating the fate of a young man will still be this captivating for someone fifty years from now. I'm betting on yes.
