Spoilers the title sounded funny.
Julianne Moore, Jeff bridges. OK, at first glance it looked promising. I really thought that I was going to have such a great time watching a comedy movie with great actors. This movie has the great rating, the prominent actors that I much enjoy watch in many of their great performances It seemed that it automatically was going to be a great comedy.
The kidnapping of the girl? Jeff bridges and Julianne Moore can do way much better. I would not have waisted my time Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. A celebration of the ultimate man, nay, the ultimate dude Engine-2 5 February I'd heard a lot of bad press about this movie.
Not as good as Fargo, was a much used phrase.
I wasn't overly impressed with Fargo, the atmosphere just didn't click for me, but anyway, that made me a little apprehensive about this. A true comedy classic with so many memorable lines and characters, but it's the movie's atmosphere which is so truly joyous, a wonderful celebration of basically doing nothing.
Achieving one's goals is important, yes, but it's okay to set them low, is what I perceived this movie to be saying. As long as one is basically a good guy, then that's enough. Well, that's what it seemed like to me, and it was expressed so beautifully in the stunning cast of grotesques, lovely music although more Burwell would have been niceand the trippiest, funniest, most absurd dream sequences you've ever seen.
That Rug Really Tied the Room Together track 13 December Acting is one of the most key elements to success or failure of a film. Some film types can survive without superb acting. These motion pictures can entertain the viewer with special effects or intense action scenes.
A film based on heavy dialog and back-story can not survive with out excellent actors. One such movie that meets the dialog-based criterion is The Big Lebowski. The film follows Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski Jeff Bridges and his two close friends through a not so normal chain of events.
Written by Joel and Ethan Coen, the creative forces behind Fargo, the intriguing story succeeds because of the actors' impeccable skill. As with many other films by the Coen brothers The Big Lebowski is an odd array of out of the ordinary characters slapped right in the middle of an improbable situation.
The Dude is an unlikely hero living in the city of Los Angeles who becomes embroiled in a botched kidnapping. This is not the average kidnapper comedy that has been seen a thousand times before.
The Coen brothers take a fresh look at an old tired subject. The story they have created is intriguing and entertaining, but the true entertainment comes from the unique characters.
Walter, played by John Goodman, is a Vietnam veteran who seems to have some parts of post traumatic stress syndrome. Donny, another one of The Dude's close friends, is a quiet unassuming character who often interjects into conversation, but no one pays close attention to what he says.
As well as these characters are written, they would not be as effective had they been played by other actors. This effectiveness of acting can be seen in the opening scene at the bowling alley where the supporting characters are first introduced. This scene is comprised of Donny, Walter, and The Dude sitting at their lane in the bowling alley discussing the attack on The Dude by some hired thugs 7min 25 sec.The Big Lebowski is a shot at human wisdom, specifically the ability of one to tell what movie plainly lacks in substance and what movie lacks in substance as the core of its intention to reveal human innocence in the face of social and personal urbanagricultureinitiative.com://urbanagricultureinitiative.com · Joel and Ethan Coen ’s movie, “The Big Lebowski,” which stars Jeff Bridges as a beatific, pot-smoking, bowling-obsessed slacker known as urbanagricultureinitiative.com · In short, The Big Lebowski is a very strange movie set in a highly stylized filmic universe: Los Angeles, as viewed through a haze of marijuana smoke urbanagricultureinitiative.com · The Big Lebowski was released in , after the success of Fargo had rerouted the Coens’ urbanagricultureinitiative.com was originally written in the early nineties, around the same time as Barton Fink, which urbanagricultureinitiative.com · Weird, fun and full of memorable characters and moments, it could be argued that The Big Lebowski is the Coens at the height of their quirky powers, crafting an American fable mixed with a south California detective story, powered by an outstanding cast.
