Movie Reviews: Miller's Crossing, The Deer Hunter

Miller's Crossing

A 1990 film noir written and directed by the Coen Brothers. Tom Reagan (Gabriel Byrne) walks a tightrope between two rival gangs. Excellent script, good story, well executed. Plan to see all the Coen Brothers movies.

The Deer Hunter

An intense 1978 movie directed by Michael Cimino, about steel workers drafted to fight in Vietnam and who return mentally affected. Pretty good movie. Probably set the standard for Russian Roulette displays in movies today.
