“For one reason or another, no one mentions Road to Perditionand that was an incredibly important movie for me,” he said on the podcast. ReelBlend.

“Conrad Hall filmed it, and I’m in there, ‘Mr. Whiskers,’ in a hat, but there are also two guys who happened to be two of the biggest movie presences in the history of the industry: Jude Law and Daniel Craig,” he continued, adding: “And I killed them both…”

Road to Perdition, Directed by Sam Mendes, it was an adaptation by screenwriter David Self of Max Allan Collins’ graphic novel. It follows Hanks as mob enforcer Michael Sullivan, whose son witnesses a murder that puts his father on the path to redemption.

Hanks continued, “People always say, ‘What movies are you going to be talking about in a few years?’”

“As a guy who watches a lot of the classic movie channel, the darker and more obscure a movie from the 40s or 50s is, the better, because I don’t have preconceived judgments; I don’t know anything about it.”

“When you see those movies and they’re great and incredibly moving, all I can think is, ‘I’m so glad this movie lasts forever, so I had the chance to see it now.’ That could be the case Road to Perdition”.
