The Directors: Sidney Lumet is a documentary which offers an in-depth look at Lumet's career in filmmaking; along with an interview with Lumet and clips from his films, this documentary includes contributions from a number of the actors who worked with him, including Jack Lemmon, Ossie Davis, Christopher Walken, Melanie Griffith, Dyan Cannon, and more.
