Miller's Crossing 
The Coens' First Masterpiece
4/4 stars

The Coen Bros for the first demonstrated to the world their unparalleled mastery in plotting with 'Miller's Crossing', a neo-noir so elaborate that multiple sittings are almost mandatory to fully process and appreciate the baroque richness of the work. Although the Coens' earlier works often suffered from American sensibilities and a general lack of cynicism, 'Miller's Crossing' boasts none of these flaws and instead displays a nihilistic and misanthropic irreverence towards man with various astute and grotesque caricatures of Prohibition era Americans. Indeed, 'Miller's Crossing' can be said, ironically enough, to be one of the Coens' most nihilistic works. Evidently, the Coens didn't realise that they had found their alcove of refinement, and sadly would only become sensible of the aforementioned indentation until eleven years later with the doubly impressive 'The Man Who Wasn't There'.
