The Verdict

( 1 )

Overview

Both a rich character study of a defeated middle-aged alcoholic and an engrossing "little guy against the system" courtroom drama, the budget-priced DVD release of this Paul Newman vehicle shows that The Verdict merits repeated viewings. A major hit in its day and nominated for five Academy awards, this is the kind of mainstream American movie that rarely gets made in Hollywood anymore. The disc returns the movie to its original theatrical aspect ratio with a pristine widescreen anamorphic transfer that shows off...

Overview

Both a rich character study of a defeated middle-aged alcoholic and an engrossing "little guy against the system" courtroom drama, the budget-priced DVD release of this Paul Newman vehicle shows that The Verdict merits repeated viewings. A major hit in its day and nominated for five Academy awards, this is the kind of mainstream American movie that rarely gets made in Hollywood anymore. The disc returns the movie to its original theatrical aspect ratio with a pristine widescreen anamorphic transfer that shows off Andrzej Bartkowiak's starkly beautiful cinematography. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono track is crisp, well-balanced, and does justice to Johnny Mandel's subtle score. The finest of the DVD extras is top director Sidney Lumet's audio commentary track. This highly rewarding master class in filmmaking also features Newman, but he basically turns up for what can be described as an audio cameo appearance and offers a few comments towards the end of the movie. While Newman is always a welcome presence, this really is basically Lumet's show. Unlike so many directors, Lumet uses the opportunity go into the decision-making process of his movie with great depth, rather than just give off-the-cuff praise to actors or amusing anecdotes. The disc also comes with a featurette on the movie itself, but it doesn't come anywhere near being as in-depth or interesting as Lumet's commentary track.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Another gritty urban drama from Sydney Lumet, the rich, entertaining courtroom thriller The Verdict combines the director's typically realistic, brooding atmosphere with a stunning lead performance from Paul Newman. Written by David Mamet, the picture follows a fairly standard legal movie premise -- a downtrodden lawyer finds redemption fighting the good fight -- but Lumet gives the proceedings a starkly solemn air, focussing the audience's attention on Newman's subtle performance. It's some of his best work of the actor's career; he's supported by the similarly stellar James Mason, in one of his last noteworthy performances. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

    This is the ONE......Newman should have won the Best Actor Oscar

    This is the ONE......Newman should have won the Best Actor Oscar for this film, not 'The Color of Money". Granted when you are given the role of a down and out lawyer, who drinks to excess it makes it very easy to pull off a great performance, Newman does this and MORE.I think if you watch this and also ..."Money", I think you will agree that this is one of his best performances. Jack Warden and James Mason are more than adaquate as Newman's friend and advisary.
