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: Chandler, etc.

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.
