12 Angry Men (1957)

It is a must watch blank and white movie. (if you are in Bangalore, then you can pick the CD from my place)
Its a extremely simple, low budget movie as the entire movie is shot in a small single roam and there were no costumes or expensive sets. The movie revolves around 12 strangers who as members of the Jury need to arrive as a unanimous verdict on the fate of a Teenager accused of murdering his father.

Another good movie to watch is Presitige

This is a movie about the dark side of obsession. 2 rival magicians (showmen, not real abstract stuff) are desperately trying to unravel the secret behind the other guy’s tricks. In this quest, they use treachery, deception, lies and ultimately bring destruction to themselves and the people around them.
My response after watching this movie. I need to watch it again!

Prestige– I think I saw the movie. Hugh Jackman and actor from batman begins starred in this movie. Its a good movie to watch and one needs to have patience to understand the plot etc etc…..

12 Angry Men is indeed a classic. It’s a must watch for anyone. Here in U.S., we used this movie as a template in a law and society class in high school and then re-enacted it in our own way to learn about the law. It’s fantastic! If you like American Classics, see Grapes of Wrath based on the book by the same name of John Steinbeck. Hope that is in India!

I agree on both the reviews……though my favourite among the two would be Twelve Angry Men….by the way there is a hindi remake of it too….Ek Ruka Hua Faisla…..I must say I liked the hindi one too….it has some of the finest actors from Bollywood

dude we have some unknown freq – im seeing classics too 🙂
i just recently saw gilda , pulp fiction , shawshank redemption and citizen cane and this one was in my cue …
did u see Akira Kurosawa shinchin no samurai???
try its wonderful

I have watched prestige some months back.(I guess it running now in Starmovies or HBO ) The plot with Nikola Tesla teleportation machine was awesome.

How the magicians finally reveal their secret to us is indeed awesome.

@jennifer ….
i cic not know that. But i will see if I could get a copy of Grapes of Weath 🙂 thanks

@Anonymous…
I saw Ek Ruka Hua Faisla.. but since India does not have a concept of Jury, the movie was very much out of place.

@Prax…
i have seen all the movies u talked about except Akira Kurosawa shinchin no samurai.. what is it about…

@Xylene…
ya, the last scene was the most awaited one 🙂
