    Amazing film, brilliantly conceived, brilliantly directed. The acting is top notch as always with Lumet. The social commentary is not too heavy and is as true today as it was 41 years ago. 8 years 9 months ago

    One of the best original screenplays ever written. Glad to know it won the Oscar for it :D 7 years 12 months ago

    Scathing criticism, and disturbingly prescient. It will make any reasonable person want to throw the television out the window. 8 years 4 months ago
