Very sad news out of Hollywood over the weekend as longtime filmmaker Sidney Lumet has passed away at the age of 86. As someone who was born and raised in New York City, Lumet was one of those filmmakers I adored. The city always played the most important character in so many of his movies, and you’d be hard-pressed to find too many other filmmakers whose work from beginning to end was so infused with the city that inspired him.
