December 22, 2013
[The Coen brothers'] most complicated and dense movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10
August 19, 2011
...joke-heavy and bullet-riddled and studded with some of the most crackling dialogue heard since 'The Front Page.'
| Original Score: 5/5

It has always been one of the special pleasures of movies that they dream worlds and map them at the same time. Miller's Crossing dreams a beaut...
March 11, 2008
Up there with the Coen brothers' finest work.
November 6, 2007
Substance is here in spades, along with the twisted, brilliantly controlled style on which filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen made a name.
November 6, 2007
It takes place in an artificial world constructed largely from the mythology of other movies, and, though it's both seamless and stylish, some find it a little too self-conscious for its own good.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
November 6, 2007
It never fully convinces in terms of either period or plot.
August 14, 2007
The Coens' take on Depression-era gangster flicks, looks gorgeous and showcases John Turturro's best acting ever.

Loosley based on Hammett's novel and Chicago's Capone-O'Bannion gang war, the film is more impressive visually than thematically, though new angle of placing Irish, Italian, and Jewish gangsters in the same tale is intriguing.

June 24, 2006
It's arguably the US mainstream's first art movie since Days of Heaven; and quite wonderful.
October 13, 2005
Perhaps the best the Coens have to offer -- stylish, funny, harrowing and brilliantly shot.
| Original Score: 5/5
September 18, 2005
The Coens play this icy gangster tale mostly straight, but they can't help throwing in a few of their dark, comic explosions; it's one of their best, most cohesive films and it holds up to repeated viewings.

May 29, 2005
Um dos melhores trabalhos dos Coen (e isto é um baita elogio), o filme conta um roteiro muito bem amarrado, atuações intensas e um visual fabuloso.
| Original Score: 5/5
February 5, 2005
The story isn't the film's major draw anyway...it's the look.

August 30, 2004
A stylized reworking of the generic gangster film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 26, 2004
Pays homage to the crime novels of Dashiell Hammett.
Full Review | Original Score: B
May 20, 2003
Without much point at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 6, 2003
If Miller's Crossing isn't my favourite movie, I don't know what is.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
May 3, 2003
...whether we're supposed to take it as a dark comedy or a straightforward melodrama is up to the viewer. A little of both, maybe. The Coens have always been a little twisted.
