|Road To Perdition|
|Another Oscar For Mendes?|
|The Zanucks knew Mendes was perfect to helm Road to Perdition from their very first meeting with him. The way he spoke about the story and his plans for the film, we felt the movie elevating before our very eyes, Dean Zanuck states. He had an extraordinary grasp of the material. |
Conrad L. Hall took home his most recent Oscar for his work on American Beauty, which marked his first collaboration with director Sam Mendes.
