CANNES REPORT - BUIRSKI'S BY SIDNEY LUMET


Positive responses are arriving online for Nancy Buirski's documentary portrait of Sidney Lumet, simply titled By Sidney Lumet. Compiled after the great director's death in 2011, and thus technically not actually 'by' Lumet, the doc is receiving good reviews for its respectful and illuminating presentation on the man and his work, from an American Masters interview filmed in 2008. Buirski's film is screening as a part of the Cannes Classics section, despite being a current release.
