12 Angry Men is celebrated for its uniformly terrific cast, chiefly Henry Fonda’s soft-spoken advocate and Lee J. Cobb’s resistant blowhard, racked with daddy issues and not about to let an ungrateful teen go free… Meanwhile, too few films take on the art of arguing as a subject; we could certainly use more of them, but until then, Lumet’s window into strained civic duty will continue to serve mightily.

Incredibly, 12 Angry Men was Lumet’s feature directorial debut, a fact that remains massively impressive considering the film’s meticulous craft and pacing. Harboring just as much compulsive energy and momentum as most modern Hollywood action films, 12 Angry Men makes every shot and line of dialogue count. It’s a film immersed in the organic relationship between façade and perspective, how each character tries to hide their own weaknesses by lashing out at others.

In this, his feature film debut, Lumet adds – in small, discreet but powerful doses – a supple, cinematic language to the already crafty mise en scène of Rose’s script. Around its mid-way mark, when developments in the jury room become particularly intense, Lumet deploys a slow crane shot moving into Fonda in close-up: the effect is electrifying, and all the more so because it has been held back until this point.
