Our Score
This sublime Prohibition-era gangster saga from the Coen brothers is a magnificent display of compelling acting, spellbinding storytelling and fine film-making. A dark-hued, richly operatic mood piece, with machine-gun-fire dialogue and twisted meaty substance to spare, it focuses on the friendship between politician Albert Finney and the power behind his throne Gabriel Byrne, and the bloody Mob war that erupts when they fall in love with the same woman, Marcia Gay Harden (a role Bette Davis would have killed for). The title refers to a lonely, leafy glade where somebody's murder will take place. Byrne is simply outstanding as the cool, calculating catalyst around whom the whole vivid spectacle revolves.


A Mob boss watches as his empire crumbles around him after he refuses to have his girlfriend's brother killed. A disgruntled henchman responds by heading up a breakaway criminal faction, while the boss's right-hand man tries to decide where his loyalties lie. The Coen brothers' Prohibition-era gangster thriller, starring Gabriel Byrne, Albert Finney, Marcia Gay Harden and John Turturro.
