Coen Brothers' MILLER'S CROSSING
Gabriel Byrne stars as Tom, a loyal Lieutenant of a crime boss named Leo (Albert Finney) who is in a turf war with his major rival, Johnny Caspar. A man of principle, Tom nevertheless is romantically involved with Leo's lover (Marcia Gay Harden), whose brother (John Turturro) escapes a hit ordered by Caspar only to become Tom's problem. Making matters worse, Tom has outstanding gambling debts he can't pay. With its Hammett-like dialogue and Byzantine plot and moral chaos mitigated by one hero's personal code, the film so transcends its self-scrutiny as a retro-crime thriller that it is a deserved classic in its own right.
