The Hudsucker Proxy – Friday Fictioneers – March 31, 2016

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.

Friday Fictioneers – April 1, 2016


About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)

  1. There’s a lot here !!!!

  2. It was frightfully real until time stopped. Yes, it sure reminded one of the dangers of heights upon inching along the ledge. Nicely Georgia!

      I liked the film very much and to me it seemed to touch some interesting social problems that we all have to face … and yes .. those falling scenes are really scary too! Glad you lied the read.
