Road to Perdition

He’s the best at what he does.

Too bad what he does is pretty nasty work.

Selling (most of) his soul, Tom Hank sinks low as a Depression-era Mob hitman in one of the prettiest-looking flicks you’ll find.

Shot by the great Conrad L. Hall, who justifiably won a posthumous Oscar, the film is a masterpiece of shadows and rain.

Its story, based on a Max Allan Collins graphic novel, is stuffed full of betrayal, vengeance, and just a hint of hard-earned redemption.

Keep your finger on the trigger, your conscience locked away, and your head on a swivel.
