Reassessing The Big Lebowski

Even having seen the Coen Brothers’ The Big Lebowski three or four times, I really did not like the film too much. I was annoyed by Lebowski’s unconsidered and Hollywoodified Zen posture. I didn’t find the dialogue particularly funny or memorable. I took the recent NYT article Dissertations on His Dudeness as yet another sign that English departments are way past the point of irrelevancy.

A few responses to my MeFi comment and a Netflix Instant View later, I felt a little different about The Big Lebowski.»

my reaction

I think Donny’s ashes in Lebowski’s face is FUNNY!
