I saw Miller's Crossing this weekend. I thought it was a fine movie, not my favorite (which I tend to put Raising Arizona or Big Lebowski, and not for any defensible reason), but one thing has me puzzled. What the hell is the point of the insane slapstick Tommy gun sequence when Leo's house get's assaulted. Everything else felt more or less deadly serious, and while I laughed out loud, and thoroughly enjoyed it, it really had me struggling with the movie's tone for the next 30-40 minutes.
Seriously, that bullet hose stuff might have been the funniest thing I've ever seen the brothers do. But WTF?
Anyway, open thread to discuss Miller's Crossing. Now, the only Coen movie I haven't seen is in "Inside Llewyn Davis."
