Sidney Lumet, R.I.P.

So long Sidney, thanks for all the Social Realism. Thanks for Dog Day Afternoon, 12 Angry Men, Serpico, The Anderson Tapes, The Verdict,  and Network.  I wish it wasn't too late to find out your secret.  The secret of how to get a decent performance out of Treat Williams (Prince of the City).    I guess it's also a bad time to bring up The Wiz and what you thought you were accomplishing there but let's not start doing that.  Seriously, thank you Sidney Lumet you made some of the greatest American movies.  And you gave Philip Seymour Hoffman that nude sex scene in Before the Devil Knows You're Dead which made me sort of self conscious about what I look like doing it.  But still, thanks.
