What you see in Miller's Crossing is not what you get, believe me. This film belongs to Gabriel Byrne who plays Tom Reagan. Tom is a hero, anti-hero, maybe, in this gangster film. The Coen Bros, those wonderful film guys, have written and directed this film. You can tell from the very beginning when this marvelous music overpowers you that a Coen film is here.

Tom Reagan is an assistant of sorts to Leo, played by Albert Finney. Leo is the crime boss, and the entire city revolves around him. Both Tom and Leo have an affinity for Verna, played by Marsha Gay Harden, though Leo is at first not aware of this. Jon Polito who plays Johnny Caspar, Leo's opposite. John has a thing for "business ethics.", which makes me laugh when you see his temper and his antics. One of the most interesting characters is Bernie Bernbaum, played by John Turrtora. A weasel loved by his sister, Verna, and for whom everything falls apart. The action is violent, beatings a plenty, gunfights a plenty, lots of booze, some sex, but nothing seen. A Coen film must be seen.

I could go on, but the themes that would play out through the Coen Bros. best films that follow are all present here—except inside-out. In Fargo, The Big Lebowski, and No Country For Old Men, the protagonists are all people who think they know more than they do, but are undone by the presence of an elemental evil (except in Lebowski, in which the evil is played for laughs). Coen Bros. films are almost always about self-delusions and how they punish the people who revel in them. In Miller's Crossing, Gabriel Byrne's Tom is the proverbial Cassandra, who pretty much always tells the truth but nobody believes him. Everyone else believes what they choose to believe. The theme of evil vs. innocence is here inverted into evil vs. ignorance. I could go on, but I'd have to write a dissertation. Suffice to say that every scene is a gem, and Byrne's performance is stunning. Albert Finney makes a great berk of a mob boss, Jon Polito shows why the Coens kept casting him in other films, and J. E. Freeman's "Dane" is a great villain (with a twist).

Good Movie .

This was an entertaining movie with a very complicated noir plot. The actors were all good for their parts, and everything about the production seemed extremely professional. I hesitated about the final star, however, because I would have appreciated some more insight into the main character, a gangster who is very thoughtful and who does, indeed, seem to be concerned, if only in his own way, about the ethics that seems to be central to the movie. Perhaps one never gets sch insight into a film noir hero, but I think there could have been more.

While this film has always been a bit of a bridesmaid, never a bride - I can say without reservation that it is the best Coen brothers film of all. From the lovely opening shot of ice swirling around a glass, you know you are in for something special and it never lets you down. The cast is first-rate, the visuals are superb (can't wait to see this in Blu-Ray) and the sound editing is among the best you will ever encounter. It takes several viewings to pick out some of the smaller nuances that really make this work special. Eddie Dane is one of the more memorable mob torpedos ever conceived and Albert Finney's Leo is a perfect fit. Then there is Gabriel Byrne's Tom - the one eye always looking off somewhere else...perhaps to the next plot twist?

Of course there is much much more to this fabulous film.

** Just received the Blu-Ray version of this masterpeice ** They have done a beautiful job with this as they had expert cinematography to work with. The visuaals are rich and detailed and the sound is wonderful, s it should be with any Coen Brothers film. Bravo!
