Miller’s Crossing

I thought this was a neat little movie – well written, acted and directed. At times it was a little difficult to understand the dialogue. One interesting twist in this movie was the character of Gabriel Byrne. Byrne is essentially a mobster that walks through life with neither a gun nor muscle around him. Instead, he uses his intellect and wit to (barely) navigate through sticky situations. It is an interesting movie in that there really isn’t a storyline that spans the whole movie.  The first section of the movie is heavy on dialog and preps the viewer for characters that they have not yet meant.  The acting alone is worth the time spent.
