Directed and written by the Coen brothers, The Hudsucker Proxy is like the perfect layer cake. It's a blend of cinematic mastery in acting, screenwriting, cinematography, directing and music.

It's the story of Norville Barnes, a simple business graduate with huge dreams, is promoted to president of a manufacturing company as a stock scamy. It's the story of starting from below the ground and climbing all the way up in a corporate giant. It's about getting back up on your feet after life hits your hard to the ground.

The Hudsucker Proxy is full of memorable quotes and lessons that really stick with you as you move up in any industry. It's an excellent piece of writing. Try and get a hold of the screenplay. I'm sure it'll be a good read.

This is one of the most underrated movies in the past 2 decades and is one of the toughest films to find on the shelves. If you're lucky enough to watch it, pay particular attention to the music. It's that extra detail that makes your heart crumble.
