Revisiting the crimeworld of Dashiell Hammett, the Coens’ labyrinthine tale of Prohibition warfare focuses on a middle-man (Byrne) trying to keep the peace between two gang bosses while navigating his own devious path through the battlefield for reasons best known to himself. Announcing itself as a meditation on ‘friendship, character, ethics’, the film glories in loyalty and treachery, secrets and lies, complexity and chaos.
