Sidney Lumet, second edition

Film and Literary Vision

Since 1957, Sidney Lumet, the most prolific American director of his generation, has deepened audiences' awareness of social, ethical, and feminist issues through such distinguished films as 12 Angry Men, The Verdict, Running on Empty, and Critical Care. Especially praised for his literary adaptations—including Long Day's Journey into Night and Murder on the Orient Express—Lumet has also directed such trenchant urban films as Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico, and Network.

In this new edition Frank Cunningham expands his analysis of Lumet's earlier films and examines his most recent work, from A Stranger Among Us (1992) to Gloria (1999). Also new to this edition are discussions of five other films, including The Appointment, Murder on the Orient Express, and Running on Empty. Cunningham studies in depth over thirty of Lumet's most significant films and surveys other films and the television productions to reveal their enduring artistic and humanistic importance.

About the Author

Frank R. Cunningham is professor of English at the University of South Dakota. His literary and film criticism has been widely published.

Reviews

"A pioneering study. . . . Not only a necessary and welcome first step toward according Lumet the scholarly attention he deserves, but also a fine place to begin the appreciation of our generation's most prolific major film-maker."—Film Quarterly

"Views Lumet as crucially important to an increasingly decadent culture."—Washington Post Book World

"Examines the political change in Texas and how Texas helped shape political change nationally."—Glenn Dromgoole, Herald-Zeitung Online, Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, San Angelo Standard-Times, Abilene Reporter-News
