** Coen Brothers fans won't get too upset if you put ''Miller's Crossing'' in the MagnumOpus conversation with ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', ''Film/{{Fargo}}'' and ''Film/NoCountryForOldMen''.

* AwardSnub: Wasn't remembered at Oscar time, ignored in favor of GoodFellas and [[TheGodfather Godfather Part III]]. Granted, GoodFellas deserved the love, but Part III? It was just a rough year to be an epic gangster film.

Added DiffLines:

** Why such a ridiculously complicated plan in setting everyone against each other? Eddie Dane -- the Dane nearly saw through everything anyway on multiple occasions, with Tom's luck alone saving him.

* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments:
** Johnny Caspar yelling at his idiot son.
** Tom gets captured by Caspar's crew and is going to get worked over by Frankie, the big lug. Tom grabs his chair and whacks his would-be torturer in the nose with it. Frankie exclaims "Jesus, Tom" and walks out of the room. Tom just stands there confused until the smaller, meaner Tic-Tac storms in, knocks the chair from his hands, and delivers a beatdown.

FridgeBrilliance: How did Tom figure he could get away with pretending to shoot Bernie without any witnesses in the woods? [[spoiler:Because he already knew Bernie, being a chronic back-stabber, would want to blackmail Tom for that "act" of mercy. And would have to stage someone else's body when Caspar yelling at his idiot son.
