n Saturday, director Sidney Lumet, whose more than 30 films include such American classics as 12 Angry Men, Serpico, and Network, died at the age of 86. He was "the primary apostle of streetwise cinema, the torch-bearer of ground-glass realism and, for a half-century, the ultimate chronicler of New York City in all its agita and chutzpah," says Richard Corliss in TIME. Here, a look back at Lumet's life in pictures.
