Another Hollywood legend has passed away.
American filmmaker Sidney Lumet died Saturday morning in his Manhattan home at the age of 86.
Known for directing film classics such as 12 Angry Men, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, The Verdict, and Network, his stepdaughter Leslie Gimbel, says Lumet died from lymphoma.
He once said:
"While the goal of all movies is to entertain, the kind of film in which I believe goes one step further. It compels the spectator to examine one facet or another of his own conscience. It stimulates thought and sets the mental juices flowing."
Our thoughts are with his family. He will be missed.
