1990. USA. Directed by Joel Coen. Screenplay by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. Music by Carter Burwell. Cinematography by Barry Sonnenfeld. Editing by Michael R. Miller. Casting by Donna Isaacson, John Lyons. Production design by Dennis Gassner. Costume design by Richard Hornung. Supervising sound editing by Skip Lievsay. With Gabriel Byrne, Marcia Gay Harden, Albert Finney, John Turturro, Jon Polito, Steve Buscemi. Byrne plays a 1930s Irish mobster at the center of a dense knot of twists and turns, double-crosses, and sleights of hand in this elegant take on the gangster film genre, complete with rat-a-tat-tat dialogue and mannered shoot-outs. Miller's Crossing is the Coens' last collaboration with Sonnenfeld, who characterized the crew as "a team of filmmakers." 115 min.
