The Big Lebowski [9781838719609]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Ethan and Joel Coen's The Big Lebowski was released in 1998 to general bafflement. A decade on, it had become a cult classic and remains so over 20 years later, inspiring a thriving circuit of 'Lebowski Fests' during which costumed devotees gather at bowling alleys and guzzle White Russians. J.M. Tyree and Ben Walters' study of the film investigates why this story of 'The Dude', a Venice Beach drop-out who becomes embroiled in an impossibly convoluted kidnap plot continues to inspire such affection. This edition features a new foreword in which the authors reflect on Lebowski's cult status and its contemporary resonances as a film about gentle non-conformity and friendship in an increasingly polarized world. The new edition also includes an interview with the Coen brothers in which they reveal the origins of the name 'Jeffrey Lebowski'.
AUTHOR: J.M. Tyree is non-fiction editor of New England Review and author of Vanishing Streets: Journeys in London (2016) and of the BFI Film Classic on Salesman (2012). Ben Walters is a writer, producer, programmer and critic based in London, UK.
