      "The Tycoon Is Bad"

      Apart from telling us that the protagonist invented plastic flying saucers and plastic hula hoops, this is a bad movie !
      There are obvious traces of some American films in the 30s and 40s!

      As for business inspiration, is it a pie from the sky that cannot be easily accepted?
      Talking about the plastics industry:
      The plastics industry first used natural resins and modified cellulose as raw materials. After the emergence of synthetic resins, it turned to...

      I hate writing headlines

      Xinpin said that after reading a book and watching a movie, you should write a book review and movie review, she said, "because you will not remember which book or movie you have read in the future, but you will definitely remember what you have written. Book reviews, which movie reviews have you written?” Although, from the part of “Fourteen Lessons” that I have read so far, this book has a strong industry color, but for those who are interested in movies and books However, some suggestions...

      The shooting technique is very interesting

      This is not a pure movie, but also like an animation or drama. There are many exaggerated expressions in it. It is very fun. It is

      claimed to be one of the 20 films recommended by Harvard University. The inspiration of this movie is to pay attention to life. But I don’t think I have reached the kind of wealthy state, so think about it, let’s talk about the realm of money first, so that the

      The failed works of the Coen brothers

      This seems to be an unsuccessful film by the Coen brothers. Maybe the budget is too large and they have lost themselves. It coincides with the story in the movie.
      The plot and ideology of this film can be ignored. The reason why it can be watched is because of the director, the likable actors, and the black fantasy style.
      The story is very simple, with the strange power and chaotic plot can be ignored. As for the old clockman, the evil doorman, the weird elevator man... there is...

      It's quite interesting, especially after the hula hoop went on sale, I died of laughter, but the style doesn't seem to be unified enough. The performance of the female reporter is too exaggerated compared to the people...

      The Coen Brothers' movies, the chattering little lines are as enjoyable as ever, but in the end they have a mainstream Hollywood or Greater China ending, which is normal and not used to...

      Tim Robbins hadn't done The Shawshank Redemption at the time, the Coen brothers were just getting started, and Sam Raimi was just a screenwriter. #Look at how it looks like now#. The biggest feature of the story is the irony of the huge monopoly system. So many pipes and typewriters and stamps. An exaggerated manifestation of a cumbersome bureaucracy....

    Evaluation action

    "The Hudsucker Proxy" invites Tim Robbins and Paul Newman to star together. It is a rare star lineup in the works of the Coen Brothers, and it can also be seen from the film that it is also a rare large-scale production film in the early works of the Coen Brothers. Starting from the first set of shots, the film created the atmosphere of Hollywood films in the 1940s, with a silver-gray metallic texture. Almost all shots are so...
