“THE HUDSUCKER PROXY is the Coen brothers’ most accessible film to date. It’s their clearest comedy since RAISING ARIZONA, though it’s not nearly as goofy as that earlier work. It’s more an ode to genres gone by, a loving tribute to the movies of the forties and the films of Frank Capra, Howard Hawks, and Preston Sturges.”
“While not to everyone’s tastes, this is without doubt one of the most exhilarating films of the year.”
This collaboration between the Coen brothers and co-writer/assistant director Sam Raimi is every bit as dynamic as the personnel promises. Tim Robbins plays a stooge who is elevated to the head of a large company in a stock scheme with hilarious results. With Paul Newman and Jennifer Jason Leigh. In 35mm.
