#7 – Miller’s Crossing

The Coen Brothers outstanding gangster film noir drops in at #7.
 
Snappy dialog and double-double crossing twisting plot that demands careful attention and multiple viewings.  Fabulous cast doing dastardly and violent deeds. Violence, loyalty, love, hate, and friendship!  Beautifully filmed with entertaining quotable lines that draws you into the period.
 
Albert Finney’s Irish Mob boss Leo O’Bannon’s defending his home scene is movie poetry. Firing away with his Tommy gun wearing his silk robe and embroidered slippers while the soft strains of the poignant “Danny Boy” plays in the background to counterbalance the chatter of the machine gun and the ensuing violence is one of the most noteworthy scenes cinematic history.   
 
Our favorite quote –
 
“I don’t ask much, and I don’t ask often – trust me on this.” 
Gabriel Byrne as Tom Reagan to Albert Finney’s Leo O’Bannon
