Is Road to Perdition getting on any lists?

That came on TV and even though it was panned and scanned I had to watch it - scene after scene of beautiful camera moves and composition imo.

It made my top 50, but didn't make my top 25.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I just caught the last hour but man, sequence after sequence:

*spoilers?*

The montage where the son learns to drive / bank robberies
Tom shoots him down and fades in and out of shadow - gunshots silent camera on half circle track (i guess?) revealing on gangster's death after another
The whole ending beach sequence
When Tom kills Daniel Craig's character - the nod to Taxi Driver - the reflection of Craig in the window
that's all I can think of right now - maybe a lot of these shots are taken from the graphic novel - I have no idea.

'Mulholland Dr.' is L.A. critics' film of 00s
Beat out 189 other titles chosen by 41 LAFCA members
Source: Hollywood Reporter

The Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. has named David Lynch's "Mullholland Dr." the best film of the past decade.

In announcing its choice, the organization said, "Lynch's film stands as both a cautionary tale and a mascot for the triumph of art and personal vision in an industry that, from where we sit, often seems actively devoted to the suppression of both."

"Mulholland" beat out 189 other selected titles, which were chosen by 41 LAFCA members who participated in the vote. In 2001, "Mulholland Dr." was the group's runner-up for best picture, placing second to Todd Fields' "In the Bedroom."

In addition to "Mulholland," LAFCA's top films of the decade, in order, are: Paul Thomas Anderson's " There Will Be Blood"; Michael Gondry's "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"; Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain"; Joel and Ethan Coen's " No Country for Old Men," which tied with David Fincher's " Zodiac"; Edward Yang's "Yi Yi"; Cristian Mungiu's " 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days," tied with Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings"; Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away"; Paul Greengrass' " United 93," which tied with Alfonso Cuaron's "Y Tu Mama Tambien"; and Alexander Payne's "Sideways."
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

^those are some pretty boring choices, albeit fiiiiiiiiine and uncontestable in any productive way.

the lesson here, and in all the major "cumulative" lists, that is any list where the result is not the choice of a single person but the consensus of a bunch of ppl (even great critics or filmmakers) is that you will always end up watering down any inspired choices.

group lists hav no personality, i think GT would agree, and that is the one ingredient that makes a list interesting. i would rather hear a very precise well-thought-out list by Andrei Tarkovsky than a collection of what movies made most internet critics' top ten lists.

one is a statistical factoid while the other is a valuable insight.

Even though your mention of me wasn't automatically asking for reply, I do like Tarkovsky's list because it avvoids a common pitfall of filmmaker lists. Every list has a nod to Hollywood, but Tarkovsky chooses City Lights, a film that still has stylistic relevance to his own films. Chaplin was very influential later on with foreign filmmakers. Often a filmmaker will make a list and have 90% of the list speak to his personality as a filmmaker and then there will be a "Sloop John B" kind of choice that speaks to nothing but basic pleasures and has little resonance with his personality as a filmmaker besides he may just find the film personally enjoyable as a viewer, but that shouldn't matter much for representational lists. But Tarkovsky finds the most logical Hollywood film to include in his list.

The only wish would be for a little more variety with filmmakers. If Tarkovsky was influenced by Bergman and Bresson, was he not also influenced by Olmi, Dreyer and certain Italian Neo-Realists? Good list, but three Bergmans may be pushing it. Even for a huge fan like me.

Good call on Police Beat.  A very unique, underrated movie, and I know quite a few people who worked on it.  Most of them are awesome people.

bad call on inland empire and happy go lucky.

probably the worst films by their respective directors and easily among the 5 biggest disappointments of the decade (be kind rewind, darjeeling, lovely bones).

i also have to call bullshit on Goodbye Solo. i honestly have no idea why people enjoy that movie. i hate every character, nothing happens, and every shot is held for at least 20 seconds longer than it ever deserves to be. i want to punch that movie.

and Election (fantastic film) was '99, so choose another one? otherwise very fresh choices.

i just have 13 more descriptions to write for my top 50 list. it's become the longest thing i've ever written that isn't a script.
