If something brilliant is happening in The Hudsucker Proxy -- and you're meant to believe that it is -- it's apparent only to Ethan and Joel Coen.

Clever but cold, a heartless mechanical gizmo.

Not even the slightest attempt is made to suggest that the film takes its own story seriously. Everything is style. The performances seem deliberately angled as satire.

Worth seeing for its quirky invention, but it's hard not to wish that so much talent could come with a little more heart.
