Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The Latin motto on the judge's desk "FIAT JUSTICA ET RUAT CAELUM" is wrong. It should be "FIAT JUSTITIA RUAT CAELUM". "JUSTITIA" is spelled wrongly and the "ET" makes nonsense of the motto: "Let Justice Be Done [and] the Sky May Fall"See more »

Vin's best, 14 March 2006
Author: nimbleland from United States

I just saw this last night in Seattle. What drew me in was Sidney Lumet and when it started saying that all courtroom dialog was direct from transcripts of this trial, I sat forward.

This turns out to be a classic New York Lumet film with all the trimmings. Vin does some of his best work to date (and I actually like some of his other films. This is not the all in the head of the writer trick - the transcript is the real heart of the film and so the key is truly bring to life the real words. That's not a simple thing. Lumet has the right balance to make it all work.

For those that would ignore or wait for the DVD, take a chance and see with an audience. You do not get this kind of film from a great director of Lumet's caliber every day.
