Sad news to kick off the week, but we can't possibly not pay homage to legendary director Sidney Lumet, who sadly passed away on Saturday at the age of 86. Lumet's work includes such modern American classics as 12 Angry Men, Serpico, The Verdict and (our personal favourite) Dog Day Afternoon; we've included the trailer below, but we'd like to leave you with this quote from the great man himself.

"While the goal of all movies is to entertain, the kind of film in which I believe goes one step further. It compels the spectator to examine one facet or another of his own conscience. It stimulates thought and sets the mental juices flowing".
