The future is now and as we leave 2020, the future can't get here fast enough. We're ringing in the new year with the Coen Brothers' idiosyncratic homage to Hollywood comedies of yesteryear, The Hudsucker Proxy. Listen as we fall (fail) into the verbal, narrative, and literal circles of the screenplay, examine the film's simultaneously idealistic and cynical look at American industry, and decode the symbolism in the movie's sterling production design and costuming. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and an extruded plastic dingus.
Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.
