Ben Wheeler's rating of the film Road to Perdition

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.
