Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 13 October 2008
I was going to try to write a fair and balanced review, free from hyperbole and gushing praise for this film. The problem is I love this film. A lot. I'm wearing my Dude t-shirt as I write. So I'll dispense with any attempt to create a critical and objective response.

How to describe The Big Lebowski? Well, it's a comedy mixed with a Marlowe-esque detective story. One seen through a fug of weed smoke and set to a soundtrack of Creedence Clearwater Revival. The main character, an ageing hippy, called Jeff Lebowski who goes by the name of The Dude doesn't want much in life; smoke some weed, listen to some Creedence and bowl some, has his life take an unexpected and complicated turn when a Chinaman pees on his rug.

I can't begin to cover everything this film has and I've re-written this review to try and do it justice. I can't do that either. It's just a wonderful mix of great characters, everyone gives a star turn, Jeff Bridges in particular (though John Turtorro as 'the Jesus' in a purple jumpsuit will stick with me forever).

Still my favourite film after ten years, it makes me grin like a fool when I think of it even now. "That rug, man, it really tied the room together." :)
