TGB Breakdown Ep 13: Coen Brothers' Miller's Crossing

On this episode of The Golden Briefcase Breakdown, hosts Tim & Jeremy are joined by Alan Cerny aka "Nordling" from Ain't It Cool News for a spoiler-filled discussion on Joel & Ethan Coen's gangster film Miller's Crossing, starring Gabriel Byrne, Albert Finney, Marcia Gay Harden and John Turturro. The purpose of Breakdown episodes is to to ponder, discuss and challenge the films that we feel often need more than just a simple review. We breakdown the film to discuss plots and theories in order to better understand the director's vision and hopefully challenge our listeners at home to re-evaluate the way they watch cinema.

Extra episodes of TGB Breakdown will be arriving about every month, and will appear here in addition to all of our regular weekly Golden Briefcase episodes. Beware - every episode of TGB Breakdown will contain SPOILERS for the film in discussion (this one for the Coens' Miller's Crossing). You've been WARNED!

Thanks guys. Bonus pod is bonus! // Eesh dudes, when was the last time you had a female guest host? Too long... // MILLER'S CROSSING is my second favorite Coen Bros. film. First being, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.
