I watched this for the first time ever yesterday.
your favourite film ever?
is what it is.
It's a film that gets better everytime you watch it and it's ridiculously quotable.
"I hate your jerk off name, I hate your jerk off face, and I hate you Jerk Off"
my friend says it gets better the more you watch it
when it first came out on video and we rented it from Video Solent and I didn't have a clue what had happened at the end.
When I became aware of who the Coen Brothers were a few years later I went back and re-watched it and thought it was absolutley amazing. It'd definetley be in some sort of 'top 20' list.
it all sort falls together the second/third time you see it
a ringer Dude"
there is so much detail, and jokes you don't notice the first 3 times you watch it, and things that get funnier every time. It is definitely a grower.
that Walter always says "shut the fuck up Donny" is a reference to Steve Buscemi's character in Fargo always talking.
clothes actually belong to Jeff Bridges
how Buscemi's characters always die in Coen films?
watch it again.
and then more.
are my favourite directors, so I tend to enjoy the lesser ones as much as their generally acknowledged triumphs (I enjoyed the Hudsucker Proxy more than No Country For Old Men. Yes, I'm aware of how odd a sentence that is written down). Anyway, I do like The Big Lebowski, but I don't think it's one of their best...
My top 3 would be
The Big Lebowski
What do you rate higher than TBL?
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
The Big Lebowski would be 4th....
"Jackie Treehorn treats objects...like....women, man"
my favourite man of all time.
They just dont make 'em like that anymore.
or did she mean me? or the dude? or Jackie? or Jeff? or 'film'?
how very vague of me, I meant the dude. The kind of man who is so chilled his legs basically fall apart when he sits down.
Thats a man!
and, no, they certainly don't make them like that anymore.
(horribly potent vietnamese weed is the cause I reckon)
worth watching for the artist character alone
"my work has been described as very vaginal"
Who the fuck is this guy?
Knox Harrington, the video artist
"8 year olds dude..."
Funniest film of all time. Fact.
"I am the walrus?"
"I FUCK YOUR CAR!"
the bit where the Dude attempts to block his front door from the thugs, using a chair
the bit where the Malibu police chief throws the mug at the Dude's head
= funniest things ever
People must watch this!
anyone who says otherwise is a fucking idiot!
'obviously you're not a golfer'
For me the only other Coen film that comesclose or is as good is O Brother.
Canny wait to see their new one thats just been premiered at the venice film festival - Burn after reading.
