Miller's Crossing

Miller's Crossing is an early (1990) film noir example of the work of Joel and Ethan Coen in which the filmic qualities of cross and double-cross are ruthlessly exploited in one of their more convoluted thrillers. Most of the action in "Miller's Crossing" takes place in 1929 in an unnamed American city; most of the exteriors were shot in New Orleans, taking advantage of that city's vintage architecture and streetcar line. The film is somewhat based on a Dashiell Hammett story titled "The Glass Key" and depicts a bloody gang-war in which corruption is rife.
