...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.

A gleeful riff on a very old genre; the Coens make it sing anew with wit, intensity, and irresistible black humor.
| Original Score: 5/5

The film is a crossroads, more gratifying for the future directions it provided for its creators than for the pleasures it affords its audience.

Not a false move, a bad angle, an awkward line or a wanting performance at any point.

The Coen Brothers certainly know noir. This mob tale shimmers with sparkling dialogue.

A screenplay of pure gold. I still think it's the best Coens film yet.

As for that story, it's good enough, but honestly I fail to see what everyone's all worked up about.

While Miller's Crossing is not as messy or inspired as Martin Scorsese's GoodFellas, or as richly suggestive as The Godfather, it accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do.

Crossing is the kind of movie that benefits from a second sitting, to get a complete grip on the plot.
January 1, 2000
As disturbing and densely beautiful as its opening image.
January 1, 2000
There's plenty of snappy plotting and double-crossing around it, with bitter twists and well-delivered, wonderfully literate, hard-nosed dialogue.

While it unfolds, the viewer is entirely in thrall.

The story, which is extremely labyrinthine and complex, is nevertheless one that is endlessly fascinating.

An amazingly entertaining film, loaded with zesty dialogue, gorgeously staged sequences and a bevy of wild characters.
