Episode #307: “Bottomless Basket of Bullets” | Miller’s Crossing (1990)

Tom Reagan is willing to become a human punching bag to protect his friend and mob boss, Leo. In the process, he sleeps with Leo’s girl Verna, pretends to kill Verna’s brother Bernie, gets double-crossed at least four times, and we get to witness Leo — an “artist” with a Tommie gun — unleash a hail of bullets with the accuracy of a cross-eyed Imperial stormtrooper.

Gabriel Byrne, Albert Finney, John Turturro and Marcia Gay Harden star in Miller’s Crossing.

July is “Crime” month, which includes: The Godfather Part III, Goodfellas, Miller’s Crossing, Quick Change and Dick Tracy.
