(500) Films of Empire - Day 247

117 - Miller's Crossing - 4 stars

There is more than just a touch of Red Harvest, Fistful of Dollars and Yojimbo in this tale of a Gabriel Byrne's Tom Regan caught between two rival mob gangs and playing them off against each other. Despite the familiar storyline, the Coens manage to make it uniquely, umm, Coen.

377 - Mean Streets - 3 stars

Early Scorsese that at times is by the number filmmaking, there is a lot of cutting straight back and forth during two-way conversations, but enough glimpses of the Marty we have come to know and love.

Days remaining - 118 Films remaining - 144
