1. Need something to watch on Netflix this weekend? We asked The Week.com’s entertainment editor, Scott Meslow, for a recommendation:

    As most predicted, the 3D, $100 million adaptation of The Great Gatsby — which re-imagines the 1920s as a kind of loud, kitschy nightclub, complete with a Jay-Z soundtrack — has polarized critics across the globe. But if Baz Luhrmann’s hip hop-infused take on the 1920s is a little too out there for you, why not check out Miller’s Crossing, a criminally under-seen gangster movie by the Coen Brothers, which is set during the same era?

    The film follows Gabriel Byrne’s Tom Reagan, a consigliere who ends up in the middle of a vicious mob war, and features a stunning, scene-stealing supporting performance by John Turturro. In the pantheon of great gangster movies, Miller’s Crossing deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as The Godfather and Goodfellas — and you don’t even need to wear 3D glasses to watch it. — Scott
