    Gangster Film Noir!

    Miller's Crossing is as disturbing and densely beautiful as its opening image, a lofty forest that dwarfs the gangsters as they chuckle over their prey. There is an uncompromising magic about this primeval setting, until it comes over you like a wolf's shadow that this is where the brutal truly belong. The movie is brooding, dark and as coldly gleaming as gun metal. A gangster noir movie written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, it is a grim classic to admire if not to love, a Dashiell Hammett-style jigsaw of hard-boiled argot, dame troubles and existential dread. As violent as the streets of Washington DC, this Prohibition-era drama - ''a dirty town movie,'' the Coens call it - is more than a little at home as a blood-and-pulp parable for these times. While Miller's Crossing is not as inspired as Scorsese's GoodFellas, or as richly grand as The Godfather, it accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. It's a smaller gangster movie, more studied and controlled, but features great moments and performances that stay with you.

    Oh, Danny Boy

    ''Miller's Crossing'' is an engrossing tale of loyalty and deceit all spellbindingly sewn together by the Coen Brothers. This film approaches the craftsmanship of ''The Godfather'' and ''The Godfather Part 2'' in design, charachers, sequencing and sound. Of particular note are an older Albert Finney as the Irish mob boss and Jon Polito as his rival Italian mob counterpart. The scene where Finney turns the tables on would-be assassins as ''Danny Boy'' plays is masterful. This is a highly underrated film.
