Network
This is a prescient, sharply drawn, and award-winning comedy written by Paddy Chayevsky about the depths to which one unscrupulous television station will sink. It makes Howard Beale "mad as hell" and he memorably raises his window to announce that he's "not going to take it anymore."
"...Directed by: Sidney Lumet. Starring: William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Peter Finch, Robert..."

The Pawnbroker
Over the past 40 years, Sidney Lumet has directed classics such as Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, and The Verdict, works that overshadow the rest of his 41-film career. The Pawnbroker is overlooked now, despite exploring some of the themes that would define Lumet's later, more recognized films.

Essentially a Russianized version of the courtroom drama 12 Angry Men, 12 is a moral powerhouse that's both intellectually riveting and indescribably poetic.
