    Miller's Crossing

    ★★★½

    “If you want me to keep my mouth shut, it's gonna cost you some dough”

    With their knack for dialogue, it’s no surprise that the Coen brothers dipped their toe into the gangster genre and luckily, most of Miller's Crossing consists of highly entertaining character actors spitting out dialogue. The film is relatively light on action and whilst there's a sense of dread to the story, this is a gangster flick with a grace and almost kind of a calm.…
