Someone once told me that all of the Coen Brothers flicks
were tributes to different hardboiled writers. BLOOD SIMPLE:
Jim Thompson; MILLER'S CROSSING: Hammett; BIG LEBOWSKI:
I don't know where THE HUDSCUKER PROXY fits into this theory.
Maybe a screwball Jonathan Latimer tribute?
By the way, has anyone read Etha Coen's collection, GATES OF
EDEN? I thought it was excellent, and there's some pretty HB
stuff in here.
