Critic's Pick

'The Hudsucker Proxy'

August 27, 1995|Peter Rainer

Those pristine perfectionists, the Coen brothers, do it again with a technically dazzling tribute to the films of the '40s that is more than a little cold around the heart. However, Tim Robbins (pictured) is terrific as a country boy who inadvertently gets caught up in a scheme to destroy a major corporation (and who invents the Hula-Hoop in the process). Paul Newman co-stars as the villain of the plot, and fans of Jennifer Jason Leigh will love her as the leading lady (Cinemax Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.).
