Give props to Sidney Lumet. His influence is everywhere. American Gangster is just the kind of film this prince of New York City would have directed in the 1970s. And Tony Gilroy’s Michael Clayton owes much to Lumet’s Network and The Verdict. So it’s a kick that Lumet, 83, puts the younger mavericks to shame with a dynamite film that ranks with the year’s best.
