Miller's Crossing

Tom Regan (Gabriel Byrne) tries to keep the peace between warring mobs but gets caught in divided loyalties in this Coen brothers neo-noir gangster film.

When the Italian mafia threatens to kill a crooked bookie (John Turturro), Irish mob boss Leo O'Bannon (Albert Finney) refuses to allow it, chiefly because he's dating the bookie's sister, Verna Bernbaum (Marcia Gay Harden). Leo's right-hand man, Tom Reagan (Byrne) is also seeing Verna on the sly, and when he's found out is obliged to switch sides, going to work for the Italian mob amidst a dramatically escalating gang war over liquor distribution.

With suddenly dark moments and trademark inflections in the script, it remains typically Coen unorthodox - another intriguing contradiction.
