So many great, great films by this director. So glad you lead with a scene from THE VERDICT (still a fave of mine, as is his adaptation of FAIL-SAFE). May he rest in peace.

@ The Gathering: I stand by my name.

@ Movienut14: Very good, the last one is Prince Of The City. Great little underrated movie about police corruption one of his best.

@ Brent: Yeah sometimes you just need to get out of the way and let the work speak for itself.

@ Le0pard13: Well said. Even though he's gone I know I have many more great films to discover.

Network is such an awesome movie, albeit very disturbing. And definitely have love for 12 Angry Men
