The real star here is the cinematographer Conrad Hall. What an amazingly well filmed movie.

It's about a father running away with his son and desperately trying to both survive and prevent his boy from being visited by the sins of the father and losing his soul in 1930s gangland. Sam Mendes turns a beautiful looking picture, as noir as color film can get, with solid performances grounding things in reality. I never read the graphic novel - though I did get all the Paradox Press stuff prior to it - but my research brings up enough differences to make the film its own, distinct work. The theme of fathers and sons is more fully developed, and Mendes cut as much dialog as possible to tell the story in film's own unique language.

It indeed deserves more than the number of lists it appears on now, but at least it is on a list

Not bad at all, even if not in the book.

What makes an action movie is the sound, not the gunshots in the screen. This is a violent drama.
