ROAD TO PERDITION
3 out 5. ROAD TO PERDITION by Sam Mendes might be a movie you missed the first time around, but it's a real gem. What I liked about it was it's dark quality. For a color film to be a traditional noir that's tough to achieve, but I think it's pulled of well. Secondly the story by Max Allan Collins, based off his graphic novel series of the same name, is very well-grounded and doesn't have that inflated Hollywood-feel. Nothing is over-dramatized and what's there is pretty raw. If you like movies like Unforgiven or Miller's Crossing, this would suit your taste.
