The basic steps to making a Sam Mendes film, as outlined by listener Matthew Keeler after watching Revolutionary Road:

1) Take several unhappy people

2) Give them two clear, definable choices between being happy or remaining unhappy

3) Make them pick the wrong option

4) Use a gentle piano score to soundtrack depression

5) Kill one, or several, unhappy people

Mark Kermode pointed out that this worked for everything up until Away We Go.
