“Nothing is what it seems at Miller’s Crossing.
Up is down, black is white, and nothing is what it seems.”
The most blaring connection to me is between the Continential Op and Tom. Tom becomes the architect of a convoluted web of killings and double-crosses that escalate into a bloody war for control of the city between Leo and Johnny Caspar. As Tom maneuvers between them, playing all sides against each other, we’re left guessing about how thoroughly he has planned his moves and where his loyalties (if any) really lie.
