From Amazon.co.uk

One of the very finest films of the Coen Brothers, Miller’s Crossing is a gangster movie set during the Prohibition era that was first released in 1990. Over two decades later, and with a high definition upgrade it’s no less compelling and better looking than ever before.

Starring Gabriel Byrne, Albert Finney and Marcia Gay Harden, the film, based on the hard-boiled detective fiction of Dashiell Hammett, has at its centre a violent power struggle, as a new organisation seeks to assert itself on the reigning crime boss’s territory. Caught between these two forces is Byrne’s Tom Regan, doing his best to stay the right side of the gun barrels.

Behind these great performances, inevitably, the stars of the show are the Coen Brothers, who put together a technically brilliant, lyrically shot gangster movie that one part homage to the golden age of Cagney and Edward G. Robinson and one part devoted to inventive storytelling and ladling on the atmosphere.

In its new Blu-ray guise, the visuals look absolutely glorious and Carter Burwell’s score has never sounded better.

It’s great to see such a brilliantly crafted film as Miller’s Crossing receiving this level of attention, and its high definition upgrade is a very, very welcome one. A must-buy.--Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER WINNER BY THE COEN BROTHERS... 8 Dec 2002
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
This is a different kind of gangster flick. It is an intelligent foray into the world of the roaring twenties and the corruption and speakeasies engendered by Prohibition. This money making turf is zealously guarded by rival crime bosses: Leo, masterfully played by Albert Finney, and Johnny Caspar, well played by Jon Polito.
Tom Reagan, beautiful played by the darkly smoldering Gabriel Byrne, is Leo's main man. Unfortunately for him, he is feeling the noose around his neck tighten, as he owes some big gambling debts that he is unable to pay. Moreover, he is head over heels in love with Verna, played with hard edged, sexual intensity by Marcia Gay Harden, who just happens to be Leo's main squeeze. Moreover, Verna's bookmaker brother, Bernie Bernbaum, played with smarmy abandon by John Turturro, has a contract on his life and is on the run. When Tom finds himself helping Bernie, he soon discovers that no good deed goes unpunished. All this makes life very complicated and difficult for Tom.
At times, it is difficult to ascertain who the good guys and the bad guys really are, or for whom they really work, as they all seem to march to the beat of a different drummer. There is more to what is going on than initially meets the eye. Make no mistake, this is a multi-faceted movie that works well on many levels. As with all Coen brothers' films, there is an underlay of sly humor that permeates the film.
The dialogue is sharp and evocative of another time, as it is laden with Prohibition era slang, and its stacatto delivery is most effective. The characters all walk the walk and talk the talk. The performances by the entire case are stellar. Look for Steve Buscemi in the small role of Mink, and do not blink or you will miss Frances McDormand's performance as Johnny Caspar's secretary. All in all, this is an excellent film and another feather in the collective cap of the Coen brothers.

5.0 out of 5 stars An obligue gangster classic 22 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The Coen Brothers are among the best film makers to have arisen from the U.S. independent scene. Their brand of slick dialogue and genre bending is consistently refreshing. Miller's Crossing is definitely their finest film. Influenced by the old Warner Bros. gangster flicks of the 30's and 40's, not to mention the hardened thrillers of Hammet, the plot involves double cross, triple cross, the obligatory femme fatale, betrayal and some gut wrenching violence. It is also the Coens' most emotional film which is ironic as the film's anti-hero (Gabriel Byrne) comes to abandon his feelings, viewing them as a weakness. Fargo was a masterpiece, but Miller's Crossing is even better.

4.0 out of 5 stars BLURAY 19 Oct 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a slightly dubious transfer, in my opinion. Generally things look sharp, with the exception of Gabriel Burns pasty face, which, at times is more or less featureless. In fact the whole film has problems with faces, or rather skin tones - all too regularily did mouths appear by far too red and stood out of the face, which is very off putting. Also, there are times when detail (such as clothing texture or wood grain) is totally lost, probably down to some digital noise reduction sheenangins. Overall it's fair to good, but it is a lazy transfer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mob rule 1 April 2007
Format:DVD
The boss of the dominant Irish gangsters stirs up a hornets' nest of trouble with the subordinate Italian gangsters over the Jewish brother of his girlfriend. His second in command has the burden of trying to calm things down and sort out the mess. He sees that the balance of power is likely to tip in favour of the Italians if the rumpus is allowed to escalate, but not before chaos reigns and a lot of profit is lost and people killed - and all for no good reason: just to win the favour of this woman who's only buttering up the boss to buy his protection for her worthless brother. To complicate matters, Tom (the second in command) is also secretly involved with the woman and he suspects she's only obliging him with her attentions, again, to help out her selfish, ungrateful brother. Also, Tom has a gambling problem that leads all the sleaze-merchants around him to believe they can buy his loyalty by paying off his debts. On top of all that, Tom seems to be afflicted with ethics - the biggest complication of all for a man who makes his living as a mobster. He doesn't appear to be cut out for the life at all. Apart from his ability to take a beating on an almost daily basis and survive relatively unscathed, he just doesn't seem to have what it takes to be a bad guy: the 'killer instinct'.

It's all a bit more complicated than that, but easy enough to follow and interesting enough to make it worthwhile. There are a few clever touches that impressed me in addition to the very sound basics of a good story and fine acting: The film manages to be dark and violent but with a smart, subtle script and great comic timing. It's a visual feast from beginning to end. It starts off in a still and tranquil forest - a situation that couldn't be further from the notion of mob violence.
