The title of this movie is deceiving. THE VERDICT suggests a courtroomdrama, something like TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, or INHERIT THE WIND. It doeshave some riveting court scenes, but what happens outside of court and toPaul Newman is the real attraction here. The title not only refers to theinevitab...
I have seen this movie, on screen and as a video, many times. Each time, itgets better. This is no doubt the best acting by Paul Newman in hiscareer. Why he didn't get the Oscar for this role, but instead got it forthe lackluster "The Color of Money", is beyond me. The movie is actuallyabout r...
"The Verdict" is simply one of the best legal dramas ever done. Ofcourse much of what happens in the movie is unrealistic and wouldn'thappen in a real case but the movie isn't a study in courtroomprocedure (watch the fantastic "Anatomy of a Murder" for that) it is astudy about redemption and in that...
I saw "The Verdict" when it was released in 1982 and just watched itagain. It is amazing what of the film I retained in memory. Most ofwhat I remembered was the sheer brilliance of Paul Newman. In seeing itthe second time, I'm 24 years older, I've worked for attorneys, I'vehad an experience with the...
I like that this film shows how the criminal justice system, solid though itis, has cracks that can prevent justice being done, and that the peopleparticipating in it have to have the courage to recognize them. This filmhas turned out to be a seminal one: legal drama has turned overwhelminglyto ru...
If Newman hadn't been up against Ghandi, he probably would have. I thinkthe Academy realized their error and Newman's win for The Color of Moneywasreally for his portrayal of Frank Galvin, in this well-done tale of moraldecrepitude and ultimate redemption. Writer Mamet and Director Lumet areinto h...
I've always believed that actors are drawn to courtroom materialbecause of the inherent conflict within them makes for good drama andgood parts. They're quite a few of them in The Verdict.This has always been my favorite Paul Newman film, it's the one heshould have won the Oscar for. His Frank Galvi...
This one really isn't to be missed, certainly among the best of thecourtroom dramas. The acting. Well, first of all, nobody is bad. The most nearlynegligible performance is by Wesley Addy, who at least looks the partof the elegant doctor and who is a competent actor. The otherprincipals are outstand...
I love this film, I own a copy and I watch it at least once a year. It'shard to pick a "best work" from Sidney Lumet, Paul Newman or David Mamet,but this film ranks up there for all three. And really, when you say thosethree names on one film, that says it all, doesn't it?Newman plays a down and ...
Although Paul Newman has received MANY accolades for his acting, thismovie, to me, stands out as the best of all his many wonderfulperformances. Newman plays an alcoholic has-been lawyer who has prettymuch given up on making a difference. He is an "ambulance chaser" whoseonly goal is to arrange a qu...
In Boston, the former successful lawyer Frank Galvin (Paul Newman) ispresently a divorced and decadent alcoholic ambulance chaser, searchingfunerals in the obituary to get new clients. His friend and former professor Mickey Morrissey (Jack Warden) bringsone client to Frank, Deborah Ann Kaye (Susan B...
Sidney Lumet reaches into a certain style in this film that took me afew minutes to, if the word is right, adjust to. One might almost thinkthe way he keeps the camera on a character or goes for the shotskeeping the characters far away (long-shots) or in dark spaces (whennot in the courtroom) or see...
I can only agree wholeheartedly with the first submission about thisfilm, it is one of the most grown up works of American cinema that ihave ever seen. Everything about the film is just great - Newmans FrankGalvin is a truly great character, and it just shows how great an actorNewman is when he can ...
Everyone is giving Paul Newman all the props for this movie, and Iagree he's great in it, but for me the real joy in this is CharlotteRampling, who is so worn down by life that she almost blends into thebackground. She doesn't even have to speak, just those defeated hauntedeyes do it all. She can do...
Paul Newman plays Frank Galvin, an alcoholic lawyer whose legal careeris in shambles. When a routine malpractice case is thrown his way,Frank gets one last chance to prove himself. Initially he simply goesthrough the motions, but when he meets the victim, a young woman whohas suffered complications ...
As always, Paul Newman makes acting look so easy. All his gestures, howhe tells that cute joke in the bar, how he moves, speaks, well, youknow, he just is the master. But if you want to enjoy Jack Warden whobrings it all on, or Milo O'Shea, another veteran, and of course JamesMason, his pauses, his ...
The Verdict (1982)A Sidney Lumet gem, tightly worked out, and with some superb acting,especially Paul Newman and Jack Warden as underdog lawyers. The moviesucceeds despite its slightly worn story line--the down and out lawyerwith an alcohol problem takes on the case of his life against all theodds. ...
The Verdict (1982)Top 3 - 1982The Verdict, another excellent achievement for the magnificent SidneyLumet (12 Angry Men) is the kind of film that shakes the insides, makesyou think and consider things such as truth, morality, redemption andjustice. Lumet does the same thing he does with 12 Angry Men ...
This movie, with any lead actor other then Newman, would have been anextremely average courtroom drama. However, Sidney Lumet skillfullydirects Paul Newman to keep this movie alive. The movie doesn't compelas well as such other courtroom movies (12 Angry Men, To Kill AMockingbird), and this is most ...
By today's standards this is a truly GREAT FILM! There's a lot thatdoesn't work here, but what does is pure gold. Forgetting theproblemmatical legal inconsistencies (of which I had to be told andreally don't care) the film succeeds on the levels it is supposed to,namely, characters, actors, and comp...
This, the utmost example of people involved in making a film who trulyknow exactly what they are doing, tells the story of a patheticalcoholic lawyer, scraping the bottom of the barrel, who presses onwith a medical malpractice case, which has left a girl brain-dead in apermanently vegetative state, ...
It is one rare film on a court case that may make us believe in thejustness of jury justice. Frank Galvin, played by Paul Newman, is analcoholic, and not an anonymous one at all. He nearly was debarred forit. He has a case that has all characteristics of a lost case. It isagainst well considered doc...
I myself have a fondness for the court room drama that goes far beyondwhat is healthy, perhaps I missed my calling in life and should ofbecome a lawyer or judge,? but enough of my fantasising! It's safe tosay that I love the court room genre and The Verdict is right out ofthe top draw with bells on....
I'm getting a little older and typing less, but I can still watch afilm (in this case, 17 times) and know when I see brilliance. Now it'stime to share a few thoughts. First, Newman is always good...but thisis "different". This is no "Slap Shot" or "The Sting" Newman; he isperfect in his role as Galv...
An aging, alcoholic attorney, prone to panic attacks,(please don'tpressure me) finds himself at a cross-road. If he does what he andeveryone else wants, he will be lost.The people around him decidedtheir course and show their true character.(Excellent acting by thesupporting cast). With the exceptio...
