Though it was critically acclaimed, Miller’s Crossing was lost to most audiences in the mire of that year’s other gangster pictures (most notably Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, which was released just two weeks ahead of Miller’s Crossing) and as such is one of the lesser-known entries in the Coens’s filmography. One of the most memorable shots in Miller’s Crossing features a hat belonging to Tom Reagan (Gabriel Byrne's character) floating through the forest on a breeze. Miller's Crossing was also the Coens's first movie with John Turturro. Miller's Crossing is one of the few Coen brothers movies (so far) not edited by Roderick Jaynes. Miller’s Crossing is a complicated beast, full of characters double-crossing each other and scheming for mob supremacy.
