The summary:  Sidney Lumet who directed such classics as “Serpico” and “12 Angry Men” has passed away at the age of 86.

The reaction:  Younger movie fans may not be terribly familiar with Lumet but he directed multiple movies that are widely considered classics of cinema.  Lumet was nominated for an Oscar several times but never won until he learned a lifetime achievement Oscar in 2005.

His movies will live on for many years to come.
