5.0 out of 5 stars MARVEL AT THE MAVERICK, 28 Sep 2008
This review is from: The Verdict [1982] [DVD] (DVD)
this is a hard-hitting and truly honest look-brutally so most of the times-at both american health-care and judiciary and it takes 2 geniuses to give the final verdict -the system is so flawed it is futile to ask for fairness -unless you know how to extricate it ,which happens if you come across a rarity -a honest professional -whether in medicine or law.

It might be rare but lumet and paul newman have delivered a seething satire and brilliant drama which is so unassuming in it's realistic portayals that you feel like experiencing the milieu of repugnant lies and vapid corruption -the truth is obscure but lumet shines with his genius and paul newman proves why he is the greatest actor ever from american screen -the movie is so posthumously brilliant that you are stunned every time you see this masterpiece -that it tends to look at the darker aspects of the american dream while balancing it with reality makes it even more affective and incredibly intelligent -this is an artistic peak in american cinema for two giants .

charlotte rampling is the feminine foil and she is spledid as the reluctant and silently repentant victim of circumstances-they all come together in a final act which blows your mind away to leave you shattered with emotion and awe-in an artistic explosion .
