The Hudsucker Proxy is one of the best stock scam movies Hollywood has produced. Much more relevant to the realities of Wall Street than the hookers and blow cartoon of Scorcese's Wolf (not that I am criticising the latter: art isn't documentary).

The script has some beautiful subtleties in it.

And the film is perhaps a sign of how those who love their trade can sometimes carry a lucky star: it was part of a string of low financial ROI movies for the Cohen Brothers, but did not hamper their progress.

Sidney J. Mussburger: It's working already. Waring Hudsucker is abstract art on Madison Avenue. What we need now is a new president who will inspire panic in the stockholder.

Board Member 6: A puppet.

Board Member 5: A proxy.

Board Member 2: A pawn.

Sidney J. Mussburger: Sure, sure. Some jerk we can really push around.
