Road to Perdition

Road to Perdition (Sam Mendes, 2009) Paul Newman, Tom Hanks, Daniel Craig, Tyler Hoechlin; mob enforcer's son in 1930s Illinois witnesses a murder, forcing him and his father to take to the road, and his father down a path of redemption and revenge.

I watched this (for the first time) with the director's commentary turned on, because I had so much enjoyed Mendes talking about American Beauty on its DVD. Despite the unpleasant subject matter, I see it as a fine film, not least because Conrad Hall shot it (his last feature).
