12 Angry Men 4K 04/25/23
The Sidney Lumet classic graduates to the 4K bracket, with a new transfer. Pictures like this taught a generation of American kids that our system of justice was alive and vital — even if Reginald Rose’s tense drama suggests that twelve inconvenienced jurors can also behave like a Lynch Mob. Star Henry Fonda continued his career streak playing men of high moral principle. The drama hasn’t weakened and the direction is flawless — Sidney Lumet was very proud of this, his feature debut. Also starring Martin Balsam, Lee J. Cobb, E.G. Marshall, Jack Klugman & Ed Begley. One of the extras is William Friedkin’s 1997 remake with Jack Lemmon and George C. Scott. On 4K Ultra HD from KL Studio Classics.
