The Most Quotable Film of All Time

Those Coen brothers have an ear for language. You feel it in the sing-songy banalities of Fargo, and in the noiresque machine-gun dialogue of Miller's Crossing, but neither of these can prepare you for the feast for the ears that is The Big Lebowski.

Channeling the opaque mysteries of Raymond Chandler, the Coens throw LA resident bum and Bowling aficionado Jeff Lebowski ("The Dude" to his friends) into a strange triple-crossing case of kidnapping, ransoms, nihilists and urinated-upon rugs. It is the equivalent of throwing unrelenting forces at an immovable object, the Dude's bemused stoicism at constant odds with the world around him. He'd much rather be bowling with crazed Vietnam Vet Walter (John Goodman) and pure silent soul Donnie (Steve Buscemi).

As with so much of the Coens' output, style is more than half the point: not just visual, though ace DP Roger Deakins paints an alluring canvas, but tonal and auditory. This is an insanely funny head-trip of a movie, with wonderfully idiosyncratic characters, down to the smallest part. Who better than the Coens to reinvent the comedy of errors?

This is without a doubt one of their very best, a personal favorite, an unmissable film and the kind of experience that will plant an indelible smile on your face. Do yourself and see this now, if you haven't already.

Still in touch, still relevant

This movie came out when I was 5 and yet I was still able to find it years later and relate to the dude! Hilariously loose and laid back performance by the lead. Excellent supporting cast and an all around cult classic for sure!

Still as fresh as when I first saw it

I had the luck of seeing The Big Lebowski during a sneak preview in late March of 1998 here in Belgium. The room was packed, and afterwards applause erupted. The entire audience stayed seated and clapped until the final credits rolled. Since then I've seen it numerous times. I introduced my little brother to it when he was 14, only for it to become one of his favourite movies too. Quotable, quirky, quintessentially Coen. 10 stars!
