Aside from the brilliant performances and cinematography, I would say that the strongest element of this film would be the beautiful father son relationship. Also Jude Law was especially wonderful as a very nasty villain.
One of Mendes most beautifully shot films. Conrad Hall is a god. Solid performances all around and very satisfying but I finished and never went back. I think I found the heart of the story with the father and son, somewhat unengaging. I'll have to watch it again.
There's something magical and dream-like about Road To Perdition. I remember seeing it for the first time. And the second time and the third. The picture means quite a bit to me, the father-son relationship resonating the strongest. It's shot with beauty, clarity and intention. I love the structure, the themes of innocence lost and the reversal of revenge to preservation of good. A perfect movie.
RIP Conard Hall! Cinematoghraphy was a masterpiece with the beautiful score! Tho IMHO beside his great performance Tom Hanks wasn't the best choice for this part :/ it didn't suit him! and the storyline was too predictable. However the performances were very good after all! :)
Some seriously good cinematography here. Shots that are both unique and aesthetically pleasing litter the movie. Costumes and sets are true to the period and bring life to a rather quiet movie. Plot is always moving. Very captivating.
