The continued popularity of 12 Angry Men is astounding given its age and subject. It currently stands at No. 5 on IMDb's Top 250 films as rated by users, sandwiched between The Dark Knight and Schindler's List. What's so amazing about 96 minutes of sweaty men arguing in a room? Everything, actually. As a cross-section of Eisenhower-era masculinity, it is without peer, but it unfolds like a thriller as a lone juror (Henry Fonda) tries to convince the other 11 that their "guilty" votes against a boy on trial for murder should be reassessed. Not a moment, gesture or line is wasted en route to one of the most powerful codas in American cinema.
