Road to Perdition

2002, The Zanuck Company

Shows you what I know about comics (or "graphic novels," as some prefer) since I was clueless as to the origins of this film; I just thought it was a finely-realized crime drama with an extraordinary music score—indeed, I was ever so slightly more captivated by the soundtrack than the marvelous visual style, and the massive talent involved (Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, Jude Law, Daniel Craig) made it a three-way tug-of-war. Alas, the sum of its parts fell just short of a satisfying whole, but yet well worth one's attention.
