The world below looked like a toy world. Toy cars, miniature people, even the sounds that drifted up to me seemed somehow make-believe. Hard to believe that just twenty-four hours before I’d been walking through the country-side of Indiana … a scene from a film came to my mind – The Hudsucker Proxy – a man, falling to his death from a huge skyscraper when time suddenly stops.
It’s one of the worst films ever made by the Coen brothers – so say the critics. I wonder why I like it so much.
