Some great films, Gone with the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia and the likes, contains far-reaching backdrops and epic scope, but "12 Angry Men" only revolved around a low brow jury room, yet it's also one of the best films ever made. The main reason for its acclaim is the solid acting, great direction, and its unforgettable characters, which exposed the hardest part of the jury's job: forming a verdict. "12 Angry Men" is the most solid proof that "epic" does not mean "great" or "classic", its all about the characters and the writing.
