Book Description

In 1998, the Coen Brothers followed the global success of their smash hit Fargo with a rambling tale of lies, corruption and bowling in early 90s LA - The Big Lebowski. It flopped at the box office. But in the years that followed, the movie took on a life of its own, spawning a culture of quotable lines, White Russians and even Lebowski Fest, an annual event attracting thousands of Big Lebowski die-hards. In I'm a Lebowski, You're a Lebowski ('That's terrific') the curators of Lebowski Fest offer the complete guide to one of the few true cult movies of the last twenty years, with photographs, real locations and interviews with the stars of the film, including John Turturro, John Goodman and Julianne Moore - and a foreword by the Dude himself, Jeff Bridges. The book also contains a glossary, trivia questions and the ultimate soundtrack listing - in other words, the whole Lebowski.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book. And thorough. 31 Jan. 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's a good book... and thorough. Very witty and not at all obsessed or stalkerish. If you love The Big Lebowski and count it among your cult favourites, then you will love this. Just one warning: Do you have to use so many cuss words, Dude?

4.0 out of 5 stars really funny and interesting read 22 May 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i loved 'the big lebowski' movie, but didn't get a lot of the cultural references. i had heard it was in some ways based on 'the big sleep' but not much more than that. this book really got to the heart of 'the big lebowski' for anyone who ever enjoyed the movie. it goes into the background of how the coens came up with the movie and their ideas (although they aren't interviewed themselves - apparently they shy away from interviews). it also interviews the actors but even better, the real life characters who were the inspirations for 'the dude' 'walter' even donnie the kid whose homework was in the car! it also shows which parts of the movie were actually based on real anecdotes and occurrences. it also discusses how the whole lebowski-fest took off and how 'the big lebowski' became such an underground hit.

all in all, i enjoyed this book far more than i thought i would.

5.0 out of 5 stars El Duderino 27 Jun. 2011
By GlynLuke TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you love The Big Lebowski (and who wouldn`t?) then one day you're going to need this book, not so much as a reminder - you'll have watched the Coens' film so often you probably dream the dialogue - as a souvenir, a comforting reassurance that there are tens of thousands of like-minded souls in the world who couldn't for a second imagine this unique film not existing, not being an integral part of their lives.
It's all here, including interviews with just about all of the actors involved. Yes, Jeff B too: the Dude himself. The idea to create a book like this, and to do it so well, deserves plaudits, and I can only thank the authors/compilers for doing us, and the film, proud.
There are those who've seen The Big Lebowski, those who haven't seen it yet, and one or two strangely deprived, neglected souls (who probably live alone, in caves) who've seen it and don't 'get' it. This essential book is not for the latter, it's for those of us whose hearts flutter a little faster with anticipatory joy each time we know we are about to again make the acquaintance of the Dude, his friends Walter & Donny, and all the other picaresque characters who inhabit this unforgettable comic, and oddly touching, masterpiece.
This obsessively compulsive book constitutes a service to humanity. Now I'm goin' to sit here, drinkin' my coffee.

Let's go bowling...
