I think you’re right about Lumet, John. “The Wiz” was a one-off, and out of characrer. At least he went on to make “The Verdict” and “Prince of the City.” There are, however, some terrific directors making films today, despite an abundance of “franchise films” and other commercially successful schlock. Thanks for writing. Glad you enjoyed the read!
