"Tell Leo he's not God on the throne, he's just a cheap political boss with more hair tonic than brains."

Miller's Crossing is an outstanding gangster drama made prior to the Coen Brothers developing into a massive household name. Even in their early days, the duo consisting of Joel and Ethan Coen could produce movies executed with articulate cinematography, witty dialogue and suspe... read more

Just the 3rd film conceived by the Coen brothers, Miller’s Crossing was just the beginning of what is now quite a legendary career for these two. Like almost every film of theirs, Miller’s Crossing is a unique and obscure flick, with a lot of interesting twists and some quirky dialogue. The Coen’s thrive on those unique aspects, portraying each of them to near perfection each time around. T... read more

"The Bros. Coen offer up their usual unstandard slant into the standard themes of corruption, mistrust, betrayal, forbidden love and all the usual factors that tend make up the modern mobster flick. "

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"Post “Fargo” and “No Country For Old Men,” the Coens are a real Oscar force, able to get even a difficult movie like “A Serious Man” a Best Picture nomination. But it took them a little while to crack the Academy’s radar (the Cannes-approved “Barton Fink” picking up their first notable nods), with the most disappointing snub probably being “Miller’s Crossing.” The period gangster tale is one of our absolute favorite Coen pictures, and should have been an easier sell, but "
