Road To Perdition (Sam Mendes)

Saturday, June 27, 2009

The big budget adaptation of Max Allan Collins acclaimed graphic novel Road to Perdition, a tale of bloody retribution set to the backdrop of the great depression, became the difficult 'second album' for director Sam Mendes after the huge success of American Beauty some three years earlier. Once again, Tony Dayoub of the fantastic Cinema Viewfinder, is on hand to take us through one of the biggest hits of the year, check out his previous posts for Counting Down The Zeroes, and finds a director whose subsequent work has yet to met the dizzy heights of his first few attempts and a late, great cinematographer, Conrad Hall, who won the last of three Academy Awards for this film, at the top of his game.
