"Miller’s Crossing" (1990)*

Brilliant Coen brothers period piece set in the 1920’s, this movie follows Tom (Gabriel Byrne) as he plays all the angles in a gang run prohibition-era city. Tom and his Irish boss (Albert Finney) fall for the same girl (Marcia Gay Harden) while an Italian rival gangster proposes a hit on the girl’s brother believing him to be a gambling info leak. Tom’s allegiance is not so clear-cut. This film is on par with Scorcese’s “Goodfellas” or any other gangster movie ever made. Byrne’s mumbled Irish accent is maddening but doesn’t overly mar this fantastic well-kept secret of a film.

Awf Hand gives four out of four stars, almost losing a half star for Byrne’s mumbled dialogue, which approached requiring subtitles. This movie will join my short list of gangster-genre film recommendations.

*Time Magazine top 100 films of all time.
