So I actually expected more. No, it’s not a bad film by any means, and it has some fine, fine performances, but it left me feeling cold by the end. The skills shown here are undeniable, the staging and plotting, but somehow the film ends up feeling just a little but boring at times. What caused this, I’m not totally sure, and I really can’t fault the film too much. It sounds like I didn’t like it, but I did. It’s a decent enough film, Turturro is pretty amazing and pretty much the MVP of the film. Still, I sort of expected more and as it stands, it’s probably my least favorite films of the Coens (although I still have a lot to see from them).
Quite possibly the worst gangster film ever made.
A monument to style over substance, “Miller’s Crossing” may quite possibly be the worst gangster film ever made. Apparently the Coen’s couldn’t decide to play this rip-off of Hammett’s “The Glass Key” straight or for laughs with the result being a dreadful mishmash that’s virtually unwatchable. Gabriel Byrne’s laconic performance is soporific. Jon Polito humiliates himself with an over-the-top performance and given his career of embarrassingly poor performances, that’s saying a lot. The rest of the cast either sleepwalks or hams their way through this dreadfully paced piece of dreck. The Coen’s script appears to have been written during an extended bender and is practically incomprehensible. The only positive I one can say about “Miller’s Crossing” is that the cinematography was not particularly bad.
