Favorite Film Scene -- 12 Agnry Men

"12 Angry Men" is one of my favorite plays and movies of all time and Lee J Cobb's acting in this final scene is one of the reasons I love it.

I recently watched "12," the Russian remake directed by Nikita Mikhalkov. The acting is also pretty impressive and I enjoyed picking out some of the similarities (right down to cast lookalikes!) but I found the pacing a bit slow. I had almost given up ...when I got to the ending, which has been completely rewritten. If you decide to watch "12," make sure you wait around for the ending. It's worth it.

Be sure to check out this amazing reenactment:
