The Big Lebowski (Friday, October 16)
Introduced by Elizabeth Redleaf, CEO/Producer Werc Werk Works
Jeff Bridges’ “The Dude” Lebowski is a glorious incarnation of Raymond Chandler’s iconic detective,
Philip Marlowe—with all the élan of The Big Sleep and The Long Goodbye—and the film has earned a richly deserved spot in the American cultural landscape. The Big Lebowski’s episodic story is held together by an ensemble one could find only in LA: nihilists, pornographers, avant-garde artists, and fanatical bowlers. David Denby called it “a slacker hymn of praise so gentle and goofy that it has floated off the screen into the fantasy life of the nation” (New Yorker). 1998, 35mm, 117 minutes.
