The old man’s still an artist with a Thompson.

It’s been a cinematic month here at the FFE emporium, and a month of depressing, cynical, grisly and darkly humorous cinema at that.

Luckily for me, last week was wall-to-wall “Miller’s Crossing” on cable. Yes, I watched it three times in a day and remembered why I missed watching it so much.

One reason:


  1. If you’re in a cinematically gruesome mood, have you seen Sweeney Todd yet? Genius, and you can actually make out every word, unusual for a musical.

  2. … or how about No Country for Old Men?

    the coen bros can do no wrong.

  3. Saw both – told you I’ve been in a gruesome mood.

    Nothing like a love song to straight razors, or like tricking a paserby to hook up the source of his own electrocution

  5. I can’t remember how many times I’ve seen Miller’s Crossing. I still think it’s the Coen Brothers’ best film…and Gabriel Byrne ain’t too hard to look at either.

  6. Cool. What kind of cigar was Finney smoking?
    I want some.
    Actually, I’d buy a box. :mrgreen:
