Miller’s Crossing
Joel Coen, 1990
USA | Format: DCP | 115 minutes

“Nothing more foolish than a man chasin’ his hat.” With this bleak, sometimes hilarious Prohibition-era noir—their third feature—the Coen Brothers secured their reputation among the most distinctive voices in American movies. Rich in period detail, rapid-fire quips, betrayals, shifting alliances, tommy guns, and, yes, hats, the film also features career-highlight turns from John Turturro as a sniveling informant and Marcia Gay Harden as a jaded gangster’s moll, as well as an unforgettable “Danny Boy”-scored shootout. Miller’s Crossing is one of the Brothers’ finest moments, and a high point of the ’90s gangster film revival.

Ethan and Joel Coen's new film Inside Llewyn Davis is screening in the Main Slate of the 51st New York Film Festival.
