Episode 38: 12 Angry Men
It's time for Corinne, Polly, and Tim to discuss the facts of the case regarding Sidney Lumet's classic legal drama 12 Angry Men. We'll argue over the motivations of each of the jurors, examine Lumet's visual tricks for heightening the film's tension, and look back at how disgusting men's rooms were in the 1950s. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and a switchblade (or two).
