Miller’s Crossing (Sunday, September 20)
Introduced by Paul Maccabee, crime historian / author of John Dillinger Slept Here: A Crooks’ Tour of Crime and Corruption in St. Paul, 1920-1936
In a classic crime fiction set during Prohibition, Irish and Italian mobs go to war over internecine double-dealing. Gorgeously shot, this fable of friendship and loyalty has exquisite period atmosphere. “A hyper-charged, multilayered whirligig of gangster lingo and idiom hatched from the noir pages of Dashiell Hammett by way of Raymond Chandler” (Empire). 1990, 35mm, 115 minutes.
