    R.I.P., director Sidney Lumet: Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon

    Sidney Lumet dies aged 86
    US director of 12 Angry Men, The Pawnbroker and Dog Day Afternoon dies at home in Manhattan
    Sidney Lumet, arguably the greatest director of the American crime drama, has died at the age of 86.
    ---
    Lumet's preferred location was the cauldron of inner-city New York and his favoured subject matter tended to be the porous line between order and criminality. Many of his most famous pictures – The Pawnbroker, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon and The Verdict – stand as tense, earthy morality plays.
    ---
    Along the way, he worked with the likes of Marlon Brando, Katharine Hepburn, Paul Newman, Sean Connery, Albert Finney, Ingrid Bergman and Al Pacino.
