Two Line Reviews - #249

Movie: Miller's Crossing (1990)

Plot: The mafia boss who controls the town and his heir-to-be get into a tussle on how one of their underpins have to be treated for his fraud act. Opinions differ and the boss's main aide breaks from him and joins the other gang. For others, that's what it looks like. But the man who changes loyalties has his own plans!


  • Coen Brothers have made it look beautiful with a quiet flow of action thereby making it unique and it stands different from other acclaimed thug films.
  • The aide,Gabriel Byrne who plays the pivotal  role is all class in his underplayed portrayal of Tom Reagen.
  • The other loud-mouthed characters add variety ; The Screenplay  with its nice twists and the camera work are of very high standards.
  • The scene that takes place at Miller's crossing is so good and the film's title is totally agreeable in that sense.
A gripping tale of mafia politics!
