RIP Sidney Lumet. From 12 Angry Men to Before the Devil, a master director. A dream interview. A true friend. An incalculable loss for film.

I sat down with Lumet in 2008 for a career-spanning talk as he was releasing Before the Devil Knows You're Dead. Read, in his words, Lumet on the movies that made him the king of New York.
