Skyfall - Daniel Craig

With the release today we get more of a feel of the film from Director Sam Mendes. Sam is regarded as a much more artistic director than many before.

This is Daniel Craig’s third film. His first was in 2006 with Casino Royale. He went on to play the secret agent in Quantum of Solace in 2008. This third film was delayed due to financial problems with MGM.

Director Sam Mendes is known for American Beauty which he directed back in 1999. He also directed Road to Perdition in 2002, Jarhead in 2005, Revolutionary Road in 2008 and Away We Go in 2009.

On his films Sam has been quoted as saying “They’re all about one or more people who are lost and trying to find a way through”. Looks like Bond 23 will be following that trend.

Check out the visual style and see if you think his statement about his films fits…
