      Film Review | "Miller's Crossroads": Gambler Theory

      It is one of the pleasures of movie fans to look at the Hong Kong translation titles of various movies.

      No matter how nice the movie's name is, once you arrive in Hong Kong, it's like entering a refrigerator full of leeks, and sooner or later you'll have to smell it. Hong Kong has its unique regional culture, and this cultural style is strongly reflected in the titles of Hong Kong translated films, such as "Snowflake High" ("Frozen"), "Two Million" ("No Country for Old Men") ), "The...

      The Man Without a Heart

       "Imagine a man born without a heart. He's kind, he's upright, he's polite, but he just doesn't have that heart." (Conscance Fonimore Woolson)

      To me, Miller's Crossing seems like an alternative version of chaos Casablanca. That's right, it's the 42-year war love story between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. I don't know if it's because of that hat or something else.

      Perhaps for more people to see this film is the gangster element, the black element, or the...

      Can't write short reviews

      The Coen brothers made a gangster movie about loyal ministers in their own way. The intention and will of the protagonist Tom successfully suppressed all involuntary and accidental factors, and finally he achieved his will, but also lost love and fame. It can be said that he chose to be alone from the beginning. Unlike most gangster heroes who conquer the audience with ruthless hardness and handsome fighting, Tom's heroic temperament is reflected in his personality and integrity. Including Tom,...

      "Miller, s crossing"

      The films of the Coen brothers, as always, are low-key and have no climax.
      The title is a place name, Tom's life creed, a turning point in love and later life.
      The meaning of Tom's hat is also very obscure. One point is lucky, three points are clever, three points are calculated, and the rest of Tom is left to fate.
      Casper is too stupid, the son and the twins are really 3 strange flowers,
      Bernnie deserves what she deserves,
      Verne marries Leo in revenge,
      Leo makes a...

      model sample of conversation

      Great movie, the opening 7+ minutes of dialogue have already set the tone, and the shots of that conversation are brilliant. I plan to imitate the application ~ replace it with courtship.
      The hat has always been unclear about the metaphors~~ I think the director may not really know exactly what it is. A thing that cannot be discarded, above the "head"! love? Friendship? ...probably not. Maybe you really don't know what you want to add to the props.
      The behavior about TOM is confusing...

      The characters are outstanding and the interpretation is smooth and perfect. The content of the story is rich and colorful. Although I don't know anything about gangsters, the movie is very good. However, before the mission appeared, the movies with various foreign names appeared crazily, and it was a bit dizzy, coupled with powerful dialogues. Ha...

      At the end of the movie, Tom's gaze at Leon explains all the doubts. This film is too basic, too deep!...

    Behind the scenes gags

    John Tetoro imitated the film's photographer Barry Sonnenfeld in his performance.
    Peter Sterman missed the film because he wanted to appear in the Broadway show "Hamlet."
    Sam Remy guest starred in the film. He played a gangster who fired with two guns in a nightclub shootout scene.

    Evaluation action

    "Miller's Crossroads" is a noir hero movie dressed in a gangster coat. The beginning of the film borrows from the opening scene of the movie "The Godfather", the dialogue between the characters, the hand throwing ice into the cup, etc. It highlights Tom's position as the right-hand man of the gang boss, and reveals the complex relationships that run through the film. But the most impressive thing in the film is the hat Tom wore and the...
