Thanks Jeff Bridges (in which I make a drawing for each of his films)

The Big Lebowski, 1998 (dir. Joel & Ethan Coen)

Synopsis: Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski (Bridges) is mistaken for Jeffrey “The Big” Lebowski and the resulting soiled rug (literally the thread that holds the whole plot together) leads us into a shaggy dog story about empty threats and impotence set during the weeks leading up to Operation Desert Shield/Storm.

FILM: approaching 10/10 (see below)

BRIDGES: 10/10

BOTTOM LINE: The Big Lebowski – 25 years = (The Long Goodbye – the mumbling) + Sam Elliot VO

My love of this movie has already been established but the first time I saw it, I wasn’t sure what to make of it as a whole. I knew that I had liked it but that I had probably missed alot. I wasn’t entirely sure what the tone of it was supposed to be. But I sure liked the characters and Bridges especially. And so I keep watching it and I can honestly say it gets better every time I see it. Perhaps this drawing can be that for you. Donny is sort of a Skeletor after-thought but there’s some nice shirt work here.
