Me. You got a problem with that? If so I might just have to pay your drumset a visit.

Post Tier 1

3) Miller's Crossing

I will start by borrowing some of what I said about this film in my Coen Brothers breakdown and then expound on some of the things that I feel make it great:

Quote:
Originally Posted by RollWithEm View Post
1. Miller's Crossing - The genre of the depression-era gangster flick has never been more popular in our culture than it is right now. The hip hop community has largely reninvigorated America's love for films like Goodfellas, Scarface, and the Godfather. I find it a complete travesty that this modern masterpiece is never mentioned in the same breath as those movies. Perhaps the mixing of the races is too off-putting. I mean what other movies showcase Irish, Italian, and Jewish gangsters in the same storyline? Maybe it's the black humor that turns people away. Whatever it is, I'm consistently appalled by the lack of recognition this film has gotten. Never has a genre piece been more intensely beautiful, intensely gratifying, or just plain intense. It's 100% cohesive (rare for a Coen Brothers movie) and richly suggestive throughout. I can't think of 10 better screenplays I've ever seen acted out. If you haven't seen this movie, do yourself a favor and buy it as soon as possible.
Obviously, I love this movie. It features career defining performances from Gabriel Byrne as the classic film noir loner, Jon Polito as the disrespected gangster family man, and Albert Finney as the dumb-muscle-turned-boss who might not be as dumb as you think he is, along with a delightful supporting turn by Steve Buscemi as the annoying shyster with the possible hidden agenda.

Byrne serves as the moral compass of the film. As twisted as he himself might be, Tom displays that "honor amongst thieves" quality that almost every decent gangster movie must feature. He's the type of guy who even stays loyal while he's sleeping with your girl. How much more can you ask? He's deep in debt in more ways than just financially, but he strides through life with an air of confidence that goes beyond his toughness. Perfect antihero.

Finney plays the love-struck criminal "mastermind" of the city, Leo, who calls the shots when the film begins. He's even-handed, well-respected, and almost-universally-feared by everyone from his employees, to his rivals, to the police, to the government officials in his pocket. Nothing goes down in the city unless he wants it to go down. Tom is at times Leo's most trusted adviser, his worst enemy, and his respected old friend. The relationship between these two is clearly deeper than the blood they have spilled together.

Polito plays Leo's rival gang leader, Johnny Caspar. His ambition belies his height, his temper belies his wits, and his judgment belies his loyalty. The character development opportunities provided by his relationship with his son are a few of the many humanizing touches in this screenplay that successfully turn a good gangster script into a beautifully-crafted film. Whatever you do, though, don't question his business ethics.

Stunningly, my favorite aspect of this film isn't the characters or the plot or the cinematography or the period costumes or even the snappy dialogue. The best thing about Miller's Crossing is its spaces. It's a film that might as well be a play. All of the significant events take place in either Leo's office, Caspar's office, Tom's apartment, or "the field" outside the city. And each of those spaces is filled with the personality of the master of that domain. It's almost like each character is a boss in a video game that has his own board that players must conquer to reach them. From the small semblance of light creeping into Tom's dark world from a struck match or a dim bulb to the heat from Caspar's fireplace that exposes a man's integrity like a polygraph to the vast flooring that makes a man feel small when approaching Leo, the spaces are the backdrop for everything that goes down in this world. It's as gorgeous as it is disturbing - as sparse as it is bleak. IMHO the Coens have never made a better film, and that is saying something.

Re: 90 Best Movies of the 90's

Shawshank Redemption at number 1 is the correct answer
