This month Crime Watch is teaming up with Graphic Content, curated by Erin Fraser and Matt Bowes, to present the depression-era gangster film Road to Perdition. Inspired by the graphic novel of the same name by Max Allan Collins and Richard Piers Rayner. As part of the collaboration I wrote a short essay on the film.

The objective of my film series Crime Watch is to showcase the quality and diversity within the genre of crime films. So I was pleased when Erin and Matt, curators of the Graphic Content series, approached me to co-present Sam Mendes’ Road to Perdition, which I found to be a fascinating study of how organized crime impacts families, particularly fathers and sons.
