Life is in Their Hands - Death is on Their Minds!
Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb, Ed Begley and Jack Klugman lead in this tense, courtroom drama -- nominated for three Oscars including Best Picture -- about one juror determined to sway the opinions of eleven others.

"...a brilliant courtroom drama about the American jury system that deservedly was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar.  Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"An intense concentration of power, and my all-time favourite film.  Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"...the tautest courtroom drama you'll ever see, surpassing Lumet's very good 1982 drama, The Verdict.  John A. Nesbit, ToxicUniverse.com
"A masterful work of debate and dialogue; of shifting momentum and the ideal of sticking to your scruples in the face of antagonistic groupthink.  Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"A film with texture, humour and relevance at all times. All in 91 minutes.  Urban Cinefile

Editor's Note
Sidney Lumet's directorial debut is a snapshot of the American judicial system in action. Twelve average New York males convene in a very small jury room on a very hot day in order to reach a verdict in a murder trial. Almost everyone wants to vote guilty and get on with their lives except for Juror No. 8 (Henry Fonda), a conscientious citizen who insists on establishing reasonable doubt. Arguments are made, cigarettes are smoked, murder weapons examined, diagrams drawn, and prejudices revealed. Firm opinions weaken and reverse; voices get raised, the clock ticks, and a ghetto kid's life hangs in the balance.

Lumet's direction and camerawork steadily builds pressure into the plot. Things start out casual, but wind up so close and tight you can count the pores on the actors' noses. Fonda is good in a role well-suited to his extra-large sense of human dignity but the stealth giant in this actors dozen is the ferocious Lee J. Cobb. Jack Klugman, E.G. Marshall, Martin Balsam, Ed Begley, and Jack Warden play some of the other jurors, and a better assemblage of grizzled method actors shouting at each other won't likely come again. 12 ANGRY MEN was originally written for television, it is a true classic of the anti-McCarthy message era, and is not to be missed.

Premiere
"Best Courtroom Drama of All Time" 06/01/1994 p.119

Chicago Sun-Times
"...This is a film where tension comes from personality conflict, dialogue and body language....The movie plays like a textbook for directors interested in how lens choices affect mood..." 09/29/2002 p.6

USA Today
"...As the juror dead-set against a murder conviction, Henry Fonda had one of his greatest roles..." 03/23/2001 p.6E

Entertainment Weekly
"Fonda shines -- almost literally in a white suit -- as the soft-spoken, merciful Juror No. 8." -- Grade: A- 03/07/2008 p.75

Sight and Sound
"[T]he textures of the film actively transform this righteous template into a bristly, suspenseful, heroic firefight..." 01/01/2012

"12 Angry Men" was Henry Fonda's sole foray into film production. Unable to get the studios to purchase the script, which he liked considerably, he funded the production himself. It was, after all, an inexpensive film to make: no sets or costumes were required. The entire film was shot on location in New York City, with nearly all of it taking place in an actual jury room...Although critically praised, the film failed at the box office. There was no action, no romance, and little suspense, as Fonda's moral superiority was certain to overcome. The film's themes, which included racial and class discrimination, were not of dramatic interest to most filmgoers...Fonda could at least bask in the critical acclaim. It was nominated for Best Director (Sidney Lumet), Best Adapted Screenplay (Reginald Rose), and Best Picture. While Fonda was not nominated for Best Actor, he was nominated as co-producer..."12 Angry Men" is surprisingly good, considering that the film consists of twelve men arguing in a room for ninety minutes. The quality of the cast and script helps, as does the dramatic storyline (the defendant's life is at state). The biggest complaint is with the characters: Cobb rants and rages as if he was back on the waterfront, while Fonda is almost smug in the certainty of his moral position. - Brian Koller

Chicago Sun-Times 10 of 10
In form, "12 Angry Men" is a courtroom drama. In purpose, it's a crash course in those passages of the Constitution that promise defendants a fair trial and the presumption of innocence. It has a kind of stark simplicity: Apart from a brief setup and a briefer epilogue, the entire film takes place within a small New York City jury room, on "the hottest day of the year," as 12 men debate the fate of a young defendant charged with murdering his father...The film shows us nothing of the trial itself except for the judge's perfunctory, almost bored, charge to the jury. His tone of voice indicates the verdict is a foregone conclusion. We hear neither prosecutor nor defense attorney, and learn of the evidence only second-hand, as the jurors debate it. Most courtroom movies feel it necessary to end with a clear-cut verdict. But "12 Angry Men" never states whether the defendant is innocent or guilty. It is about whether the jury has a reasonable doubt about his guilt...The cast included only one bankable star, Fonda, but the other 11 actors were among the best then working in New York, including Martin Balsam, Lee J. Cobb, E. G. Marshall, Jack Klugman, Jack Warden, Ed Begley and Robert Webber. They smoke, they sweat, they swear, they sprawl, they stalk, they get angry. - Roger Ebert
