Sam Raimi and Joel and Ethan Coen wrote this stylish satire about the rapid rise of a naive mailroom clerk in the shark-filled waters of Hudsucker Industries.
Intriguingly strange and visually distinctive, The Hudsucker Proxy is ultimately almost -- but not quite -- as smart and absorbing as it needs to be.
A visually arresting but emotionally uninvolving dark comedy.
A minor work, but confirmation of the Coens' position among America's most ambitious, able and exciting film-makers.
Few of the Coen Brothers' films spike the vein of pure pleasure as easily. It's an irresistibly loquacious, unpredictably riotous comedy that dares you to keep up with its daffiness and doesn't give a damn whether you get left behind.
A jeering, dreamlike comedy with nothing much on its mind except how neat the Coen brothers are and how stupid or contemptible everybody else is, including everyone in the audience.
Movies are, after all, about fakery; so is the story of Norville's rise and fall and redemption.
A pastiche of a movie that lacks distinct identity and authenticity, made up of borrowed parts from scrwball comedies Frank Capra, Howard Hawks, and Preston Sturges.
Nearly everything in the Coen brothers' latest and biggest film seems like a wizardly but artificial synthesis, leaving a hole in the middle where some emotion and humanity should be.
A wickedly funny and incisive lampoon of big business.
An impressive technical achievement--the period New York sets are to die for -- and its version of the invention of the hula-hoop is a comic highlight.
