There is not a lot I can say about this scene from “Miller’s Crossing” (1990) that it doesn’t already say for itself. The dialogue is fast and furious, and it doesn’t stop. And it’s not just in this scene, either. The whole movie is like this. The script must have been four inches thick!
This will be one of my shorter posts. I tend to drone on, which I do acknowledge, but I am working on it! This would, in fact, be a very good time for me to shut up sooner rather than later. The last thing I need is for my pointless ramblings to be compared to the taut, brilliant dialog of Joel and Ethan Coen. Let’s listen as Gabriel Byrne and Marcia Gay Harden battle it out for the title of “Toughest Guy in the Room.” Enjoy!
