12 Angry Men

This is a movie masterpiece and shows how good writing can outshine showy set pieces. Henry Fonda, is marvellous as the one juror standing alone in the case of an 18 year old facing the electric chair. The supporting roles are all well played and each a believable well rounded character.

This movie is still powerful enough to have us challenge our perceptions and prejudices even after almost 60 years.

Should I watch this? I’m surprised and let down that you haven’t already 🙂
