2 Coen brothers, "The Hudsucker Proxy".."O­ Brother Where Art Thou" at CineMike

  • February 28, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Cine Mike at Mike Ivie's house

In celebration of the recent Coen brothers period piece, "Inside Llewyn Davis", I've chosen 2 other great Coen brothers period pieces for the next CineMike series. "The Hudsucker Proxy", set in the 1950s, is like a zany, madcap live action cartoon that spoofs big business greed in a Frank Capra way. It's also imitating the screwball comedies of the 1930s/40s. Starring Paul Newman, Tim Robbins and Jennifer Jason Leigh giving a good Katherine Hepburn imitation.

"O Brother, Where Art Thou?", set in the depression era 1930s retells The Odyssey in a tale of 3 escaped convicts ( George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson ) and the misadventures they get into. And like "Inside Llewyn Davis", T Bone Burnett is on hand to curate the bluegrassy soundtack. 2 great examples on how The Coen's shine when the past.

Mike Ivie has a great media room with a huge screen and comfortable, plush leather chairs. Everybody brings a snack or dish to share. Try to come 20-30 minutes beforehand to snack, so we can start the movies promptly at 7:00.  See y'all then.......
