Starring Gabriel Byrne, Marcia Gay Harden, Albert Finney, John Turturro, Steve Buscemi, Jon Polito

Italian mobsters want Bernie Bernbaum (Turturro) dead. Irish mobster Liam O’Bannon (Finney) says he won’t let it happen. O’Bannon’s closest confidant Tom Reagan (Byrne) tells him that’s not the smart move. O’Bannon doesn’t listen. The ensuing drama plays out in true Coen brothers fashion, balancing scenes of extreme violence with humor and colorful characters. The whole cast is great, but Polito and Turturro stand out in key supporting roles. Miller’s Crossing is overflowing with style, wit, and intelligence. Adapted from Dashiell Hammett’s The Glass Key.
