Jeff Wells at Hollywood-Elsewhere agrees with me that Revolutionary Road is one of the best of the year. Wells writes:
Revolutionary Road is a corrosive and heartbreaking masterwork. Sam Mendes‘ best film yet is exquisitely cut, blended and calibrated with superb music by Thomas Newman and legendary performances from Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet and Michael Shannon. It’s the strongest heavyweight drama I’ve seen all year so far — much more searing and moving than I expected.
In fact, the film makes Mendes an artist to watch all over again. He is helped along by the exquisite source material and by those incredible performances.
