Director Sidney Lumet dies at 86

Sidney Lumet, who directed such impassioned, often furious, movies as Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon and Network, died Saturday morning at his home in New York City. He was 86, The Hollywood Reporter informs. The cause of death was lymphoma, his stepdaughter Leslie Gimbel told the New York Times. Lumet, who received five Oscar nominations and seven DGA nominations for his work, was awarded an honorary Oscar in 2005 for his “brilliant services to screenwriters, performers and the art of motion pictures.”
