The New York Times reported this morning that legendary director Sidney Lumet has died at 86 from Lymphoma. Lumet has been the director of many classics including;

His films were nominated for over 40 Academy Awards, and Lumet was nominated four times for Best Director (he received an honorary Oscar in 2005).  Not all of his films will be remembered as classics, but more than most could ever ask for.  Lumet’s last film Before the Devil Knows Your Dead was made in 2007.  Having just watched 12 Angry Men again this afternoon, I believe his films will live on for eternity.
