The Big Lebowski November 4, 2006

Posted by ujj in LAN, Mood: Need 2 laugh, Reviews.

Believe me all “The Dudes” wanna watch this. Our big Lebowski is the most eligible dude to ever hit the big screen. Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, the big lebowski is a ..funny.. hilarious.. fall back laughing and break your butt film. Completely different from the earlier works of Coen bros that includes film noir dramas like Fargo . The Dude with Walter and DonnieJeff Bridges plays the dude or the unemployed, bowling, broke, Mr Lebowski. He is mistaken by some men to be some other Mr Lebowski of the same town who happens to be a millionaire. These folks urinate on the dudes rug which in the words of the Dude “really held the room together”. The dude’s friend Walter hates nihilists, its not what he and his freinds fought in the Nam (Vietnam) for. He wants the Dude to get the rug compensated by the real Mr Lebowski and so the Dude tries but finds himself stuck in something thats worse than losing a rug that really held his room together. Just have a look at the screenshot (The Dude on the left), does he look like someone who will let his rug be pissed upon becaue of mistaken identity?

Its like a week in the life of a man who hardly has the time to care about anything other than his drink. Careless, lazy, dumb, bum, lousy undermine his personality, you can do justice to it only by referring him as the Dude, not a dude but The Dude. The Dude infact does not mind being called dude or His Dudeness or El Duderino but hates being called Mr Lebowski or Sir. Theres one instance when hes being interrogated by the real Mr Lebowski about some task that he entrust upon him, the way The Dude replies to his questions reminds me of all those times in college when you want to speak for long but dont have enough to day. He blathers for five minutes when actually he just wants to say that he has some information and “new shit has come to light”. People enjoy watching it, people like me feel like were watching our own stories and how deplorable our life seems to us, but then were justy dudes, Jeff is the Dude.

Jeff Bridges is more known for the film Fearless, a film about a near death experience of a person in a plain crash. A completely diagonal role to the Dude. I wont blather about it any further, Fearless deserves a dedicated review.

I have still never seen this all of the way through. Something has alway come up and I had to leave it.

The DUDE was one of the best characters around. One of my friends is just like him as well. I think that is one of the best aspects of this film is that the characters are believable. No matter who you are of how old you are, im sure you know a DUDE!!

Great movie!

What’s not to love about this movie? The writing is great, the acting is even better and it will leave you in stitches. Sometimes bad things happen just from a little name mix up, which is why I’m glad I have such a strange name. No one will be peeing on my rugs or kidnapping my lover anytime soon.
