Great Cannes Openers
The Hudsucker Proxy (1994)

As choices like Hair and The Fifth Element show, Cannes like to kick off with a little fantasie. Who better to turn to for an opening night treat, then, than those masters of mystique, the Coen brothers? Much-underrated, The Hudsucker Proxy is their love letter to the cinema of the '30s and '40s. The homage to the movies of Preston Sturges and Frank Capra offered its French audience familiar, and fond, reference points. Ultimately a critical bomb, Hudsucker was well received at Cannes, though ultimately pipped to the Palme d'Or by Pulp Fiction.
